The temporary hearing loss suffered as the result of exposure to an acoustic wave. All or part of the loss is recovered during a given period of time after the exposure has been stopped (O1 75).
Momentary dulling of the sense of hearing after exposure to loud sounds. Can lead to permanent threshold shift.
A loss of hearing associated with the effect of loud noise, which disappears after a period of recovery.
a temporary hearing loss which is usually a temporary dullness in hearing after exposure to loud noise. Hearing usually returns to normal within 48 hours, but this varies on the loudness of the noise, and how long you were exposed to it.
Temporary increase in the threshold of audibility for an ear caused by exposure to high-intensity acoustic stimuli. Such a shift may be caused by other means such as use of aspirin or other drugs. Unit, dB. (ANSI S3.20-1995: temporary threshold shift; temporary hearing loss).
Temporary increases in threshold occurring after exposure to high noise levels, which can last from minutes to hours.
