The authors applied noise exposure and audiometry information collected on 156 Chinese textile workers to develop a method of identifying individuals susceptible to noise-induced hearing loss. They estimated noise-induced hearing threshold shift (NIHTS) by averaging the adjusted hearing thresholds at 3, 4, and 6 kHz of both ears, and they fitted a quadratic model to describe the dose-response relationship between cumulative noise exposure and NIHTS. The residual between the actual NIHTS and the… CONTINUE READING
