For audiologists and others who provide hearing conservation services, as well as graduate students, Rawool (speech pathology and audiology, West Virginia U.) describes how to conserve the hearing of workers who are exposed to hazardous noise or ototoxins. The first chapter reviews the effects of noise and ototoxins on hearing and health and the elements of a hearing conservation program, followed by measures specified by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, including noise measurements and control and audiological monitoring. Subsequent chapters address audiological monitoring for individuals exposed to ototoxic drugs; procedures for evaluation; current hearing protection and enhancement devices, regulations, procedures for selecting and fitting devices, and training workers in the use of devices; education and training; evaluating effectiveness of a program; procedures for musicians and treatment for music-induced hearing loss; conserving hearing in nonwork settings; worker's compensation; support and treatment for workers with hearing loss; hearing conservation in educational settings; and future trends like the use of antioxidants and gene therapy.
