Previous studies show that exposure to low frequency noise (LFN) (< or =500 Hz, including infrasound) produces irreversible lesions in Wistar rat respiratory epithelia. Recovery periods for LFN-induced lesions have thus become an object of interest. Changes in the respiratory epithelia of Wistar rats after continuous short-term exposure to LFN are described. Twelve rats were exposed to continuous LFN for 48 hrs, and 10 age-matched rats were kept in silence. Animals were treated in accordance… CONTINUE READING
