Using a soundproof room, Toronto researchers tested 74 musicians and 89 non-musicians on their ability to detect brief gaps in sound, speech in a noisy background, different sound frequencies and increasingly quieter tones called pure-tone thresholds.
Detection of pure-tone thresholds, commonly used to assess hearing loss, was similar in both groups, reflecting normal age-related changes to the inner ear, researchers said.
These courses are approved by the Council for Accreditation in Occupational Hearing Conservation (CAOHC) and are designed to train nursing, allied medical, and industrial personnel to perform pure-tone air-conduction hearing tests and participate in other components of workplace hearing conservation programs for noise-exposed workers.
