1. Cristiane Bolzachini Santoni. Pop-rock musicians: effects of amplified music and assessment of satisfaction provided by the use hearing protectors.

Degree: 2008, Pontifícia Universidade Católica de São Paulo

Objetivo: Avaliar a audição e o uso de protetores auditivos em músicos de bandas de pop-rock. Justificativa: Estudos demonstram evidências dos músicos de pop-rock apresentarem risco para o desenvolvimento de perda auditiva e outros efeitos associados à exposição à música amplificada, bem como a necessidade de adotar medidas de proteção à audição desses profissionais. Método: Foram avaliados 24 músicos de pop-rock, do sexo masculino, com idades entre 25 e 45 anos e com tempo de profissão entre três e 21 anos. Os sujeitos responderam a uma anamnese, realizaram avaliação audiométrica, realizaram os testes de emissões otoacústicas evocadas por estímulo transiente (EOAET) e emissões otoacústicas produto de distorção (EOAPD) e preencheram um questionário sobre a satisfação após o uso do protetor auditivo. Resultados: A prevalência de perdas auditivas sugestivas de PAIR foi de 20,8%. Dentre os audiogramas classificados como normais 58,4% apresentaram entalhe audiométrico em pelo menos uma orelha. No teste de emissões otoacústicas, 45,8% dos músicos tiveram respostas ausentes nas EOAET e 58,4% nas EOAPD. 75,0% dos músicos forneceram nota maior do que 7,0 para refletir sua satisfação no uso do protetor auditivo. Conclusões: Tanto a prevalência de perdas auditivas, quanto o número de ausências nos testes de EOAET e EOAPD foram elevados. Assim sendo, é necessária a implementação de um programa de prevenção de perdas auditivas com músicos. Houve uma tendência favorável à aceitação do protetor auditivo

Purpose: The aim of the present study was to evaluate hearing and assess the satisfaction provided by the use hearing protectors in pop-rock musicians. Background: Studies have shown evidences of the risk of pop-rock musicians to develop hearing loss and other symptoms related to amplified music, as well as to adopt preventive measurements to protect their hearing. Method: It was evaluated 24 pop-rock musicians, male gender and ages between 25 to 45 years old, with professional experience between 3 to 21 years. It was accomplished: anamnesis, audiometric evaluation, transient otoacoustic emission (TEOAE), distortion product otoacoustic emission (DPOAE) and also was applied an ear protective devices satisfaction assessment questionnaire. Results: The prevalence of noise-induced hearing loss was 20.8%. In normal audiograms, there was a notch in high-frequencies in 58.4%, in at least one ear. The responses of TEOAEs were absent in 45.8% of the musicians and DPOAEs were absent in 58.4%. Concerning to satisfaction with the ear protective devices usage, 75.0% of the musicians evaluated them above grade 7.0. Conclusions: There was a high prevalence of hearing losses as well as alterations in TEOAEs and DPOAEs responses. Therefore, it is fundamental to develop and implement hearing loss preventive programs for musicians. There was a positive tendency towards the use of the ear protective devices

2. Ekdahl, Siv Bugevall. Användning av hörselskydd i bullrig arbetsmiljö.

Degree: Sweden, 2013, Örebro University

Buller är ett stort arbetsmiljöproblem, som kan leda till ohälsa. Det är viktigt att personal som i sitt arbete löper risk för hörselskador använder hörselskydd. Studiens syfte var att beskriva och jämföra användning av hörselskydd bland personal som arbetar i bullrig arbetsmiljö inom verkstadsindustrin. Studien var en tvärsnittsstudie med en deskriptiv och komparativ design. Data samlades in med hjälp av en enkät. Det var 127 personer som besvarade enkäten. Stu-diedeltagarnas medelålder var 45 år. Majoriteten, 101 personer hade arbetat i bullrig arbets-miljö i mer än 10 år. Det framkom att 48 personer i studien upplevde att de hade hörselned-sättning. Majoriteten hade fått information om risk för hörselskador vid arbete i bullrig miljö. Det fanns en statistiskt signifikant skillnad när det gäller val av hörselskydd mellan avdel-ningar med olika bullernivåer. Studien visade ingen signifikant skillnad vid val av hörsel-skydd beroende på upplevt buller. Det vanligast förekommande hörselskyddet var kåpor. De som använde formgjutna proppar gav dessa det bästa betyget. Den mest vanligt förekomman-de anledningen till att inte hörselskydd användes av personalen var att de arbetade endast del av arbetstid i buller. Denna kunskap kan ligga till grund för företagssköterskans information avseende val/användande av hörselskydd.

Noise is a major problem in the working environment and may result in impaired health. It is important that personnel which are at risk of developing hearing damage use ear protective devices. This study aimed to and describe compare the usage of ear protec-tive devices among personnel working in a noisy environment within the industrial manufacturing. The study was a cross-sectional study with descriptive and comparative design. Data was collected in the form of a questionnaire, which 127 persons participat-ed in. The mean age of the participants was 45 years. The majority, 101 persons, had been working within a noisy working environment for more than 10 years. It appeared that 48 of the respondents experienced a hearing impairment. The majority of the partic-ipants had received information concerning the risk of developing hearing damage when working in a noisy environment. There was a statistically significant difference in the choice of ear protective device between departments with different noise levels . This study showed no significant difference in the choice of ear protective device due to ex-perienced noise. The ear protective device most common used was earmuffs. The re-spondents that used molded plugs rated these highest. The most frequent motive against using ear protective devices among the participants was the fact that they only spent part of the working day in a noisy environment. This knowledge may form a basis for the occupational health nurse’s information regarding choice/usage of ear protective devices.
