Hearing Disorders

  • Robert D. Boyd
  • Norton B. Young


Hearing loss which affects the quality of life is a concomitant of our industrialized society and its increasing urban noise. Nearly every individual beyond late childhood will develop increasing hearing loss for high frequencies to the point of handicap by middle or old age. This is the norm for our industrialized society and does not take into consideration those individuals who either are born with hearing impairment or develop hearing loss due to disease or injury. It may be said that the incidence of hearing impairment is essentially 100% for our society when one includes the effect of aging and environment on the hearing function coupled with the effect of increased life span.
