We investigated the effect of body temperature on transient evoked otoacoustic emissions (TEOAEs) in humans. Hyperthermic conditions were obtained in adults in a climatic chamber. During hyperthermia up to an average temperature of 38.4 degrees C, significant falls were found in total amplitude and peak values of TEOAEs: by 1.3 dB SPL/degree C and 2.3 dB/degree C, respectively. This inhibition affected all spectrum components equally. These findings indicate that the outer hair cell… CONTINUE READING
