In questo lavoro viene indagata la possibilita che l’impulsivita di un rumore possa essere efficacemente quantificata mediante la differenza fra i due livelli percentili L 1 ed L 16 . A supporto di questa ipotesi vengono presentati test numerici eseguiti su diverse distribuzioni. Rispetto ad altri descrittori proposti nella recente letteratura, (L 1 – L 16 ) risulta concettualmente assai piu semplice e non richiede alcuna elaborazione aggiuntiva rispetto a quanto fornito da un fonometro.  La…

Is it necessary to penalize impulsive noise +5 dB due to higher risk of hearing damage?
TLDR
The results indicate that the penalty overestimated the effects on DPOAE levels and support the concept that the risk of hearing loss from low-level impulses may be predicted on an equal-energy basis.
Impulse noise and risk criteria.
TLDR
There is an urgent task to develop risk assessment method and risk criteria for impulsive noise to meet the requirements of the upcoming European Union noise directive.
The use of the kurtosis metric in the evaluation of occupational hearing loss in workers in China: implications for hearing risk assessment.
TLDR
The results suggest that the kurtosis metric is an important variable in determining the hazards to hearing posed by a high-level industrial noise environment for hearing conservation purposes, and the need to develop and analyze a larger database of workers with well-documented exposures to better understand the effect of k Kurtosis on NIPTS incurred from high level industrial noise exposures.
Estimation of Noise Induced Hearing Loss (NIHL) with Hearing Deterioration Index (HDI).
TLDR
In this interesting study, the authors had utilized Hearing Deterioration Index (HDI) as an indirect method for assessing NIHL, which supports the notion that some individuals are more genetically susceptible to noise damage than others.
Hearing loss from interrupted, intermittent, and time varying non-Gaussian noise exposure: The applicability of the equal energy hypothesis.
TLDR
The results suggest that the equal energy hypothesis is an acceptable approach to evaluating noise exposures for hearing conservation purposes provided that the kurtosis of the amplitude distribution is taken into consideration.
Application of the Kurtosis Statistic to the Evaluation of the Risk of Hearing Loss in Workers Exposed to High-Level Complex Noise
TLDR
The kurtosis metric may be a reasonable candidate for use in modifying exposure level calculations that are used to estimate the risk of NIHL from any type of noise exposure environment, however, studies involving a large number of workers with well-documented exposures are needed before a relation between a metric such as the k Kurtosis and therisk of hearing loss can be refined.
The Use of the Kurtosis-Adjusted Cumulative Noise Exposure Metric in Evaluating the Hearing Loss Risk for Complex Noise
TLDR
The kurtosis-adjusted CNE may be a reasonable candidate for use in NIHL risk assessment across a wide variety of noise environments and provided a single metric for dose–response effects across different types of noise.
The effects of the amplitude distribution of equal energy exposures on noise-induced hearing loss: the kurtosis metric.
TLDR
The data show that the kurtosis of the amplitude distribution of the noise environment is an important variable in determining the hazards to hearing posed by non-Gaussian noise environments, and lend support to standards documents that use an energy metric for gauging the hazard of exposure.
Hearing loss induced by occupational and impulse noise: Results on threshold shifts by frequencies, age and gender from the Nord-Trøndelag Hearing Loss Study
TLDR
The effect of noise on hearing acuity across the range 250–8000 Hz and the extent to which the patterns of frequency-specific threshold shifts differ between occupational noise and impulse noise were compared.
Kurtosis corrected sound pressure level as a noise metric for risk assessment of occupational noises.
TLDR
It is shown that the kurtosis correction term significantly improves the correlation of the noise metric with the measured hearing losses in chinchillas, and the average SPL of the frequency components of thenoise that define the hearing loss with a kurtotic correction term is identified as the best noise metric among tested.
