The cochlear blood flow was measured with the microsphere method in unanesthetized rabbits, prior to and during noise-exposure. Different sound pressure levels were used: 100 dB, 115 dB and 120 dB. Some of the animals had the cervical sympathetic trunk cut unilaterally. The effects of the delivered noise on the organ of Corti were studied in other rabbits with scanning electron microscopy. In spite of ultrastructural changes indicating damage of sensory cells after 115 dB and 120 dB exposure no… CONTINUE READING
