Reducing the Risk of Hearing Disorders among Musicians

Noisy Notes

Editor’s Note: This column points out the difference between the perception of occupational noise and its actual measurement. This is important clinically where we perform a case history. Asking if the client’s work environment is noisy, probably will provide little or no information, especially if they say no.

NIOSH has just come out with a readable document about musicians and some useful strategies to minimize the effects of high sound levels from music. Courtesy of our friends at NIOSH, we are pleased to reprint the document here in this issue’s Noisy Notes. Please click here to read the document.
