To investigate the origin of the susceptibility to noise in subjects with histories of otitis media (OM), we assessed early sub-clinical impairments in normally hearing subjects with a history of OM using distortion product otoacoustic emissions (DPOAEs). DPOAEs of 213 normal-hearing subjects aged 18-24 years were obtained and comparisons of DPOAE levels in several groups as a function of OM past infections were tested by ANOVA. A main finding was that young normal-hearing subjects with a… CONTINUE READING
