[The influence of external factors on the auditory function in the students residing in a megapolis].

Abstract

The objective of the present study was to estimate the auditory function in the students aged from 20 to 30 years and the noise load associated with the use of mobile phones, listening to music through headphones, attending concerts and youth clubs. The secondary objective was to assess the influence of these factors on the auditory function depending on their type, intensity, and duration. It is shown that the auditory threshold in the frequency range between 125 and 8000 Hz in 97% of the examined students do not exceed 25 dB varying from 5 to 15 dB The main factor influencing the auditory function is the use of players and headphones followed by mobile phones and deafening music in youth clubs.
