A 10-year noise project, consisting of annual hearing measurement, temporary threshold shift (TTS) measurements and examination of noise exposure in 250-300 employees, involved a study of the improvement in measured hearing threshold by changing the position of the headphone at the ear. Threshold measurements were performed at 11 frequencies ranging from(More)
Playing selected types of music on five different personal cassette players (PCPs) and using different gain (volume) settings, A-weighted maximum and equivalent sound pressure levels (SPLs) were measured on KEMAR (Knowles Electronics Manikin for Acoustic Research). The octave band SPLs were measured on KEMAR ear and transformed to field values in order to(More)
Playing various types of music on five selected personal cassette players (PCPs), A-weighted sound pressure levels (SPLs), together with octave band spectrum, were measured on KEMAR (Knowles Electronics Manikin for Acoustic Research). Maximum and equivalent SPLs were measured for various types of music, PCPs and for different gain (volume) settings. The(More)
Behavioural responses have been elicited to acoustic stimuli in hereditarily deaf white mink (Hedlund). This revealed onset of auditory function at an average age of 31 days. The period of hearing lasted on the average only 7 days. Similar observations have been reported in other hereditarily deaf animals (cat, mouse, guinea pig). It is suggested that the(More)
Heredopathia atactica polyneuritiformis is a biochemically defined disease with a specific dietary treatment. It is an autosomal inborn error of metabolism. The phytanic acid is of exogenous origin and stems mainly from preformed phytanic acid in foods. In two Norwegian patients, serum phytanic acid has been brought down to normal levels and one of them has(More)
The functional results of 9 persons implanted with the Symbion Ineraid and 8 persons implanted with the Nucleus cochlear implant with the F0, F1, F2 coding strategy are reported. All patients were postlingually totally deaf, the patients implanted with the Symbion Ineraid were all above 40 years of age, while the Nucleus patients were with one exception(More)
Electrical stimulation of the skin in the cavum conchae is followed by bilateral changes in the acoustic impedance of the ear due to reflex contraction of the stapedius muscle. A stimulator and a special surface electrode for electrical stimulation of the skin have been developed. The apparatus produces square-wave constant-current pulses independent of the(More)
