Permanent Threshold Shift Associated with Overamplification by Hearing Aids.
Macrae, John H.
Journal of Speech and Hearing Research, v34 n2 p403-14 Apr 1991
The study evaluated use of the Modified Power Law to predict permanent threshold shift (PTS) resulting from noise exposure in eight children with severe sensorineural hearing loss attributed to overamplification by hearing aids. The PTS tended to be flat across frequency with its course similar to PTS in persons with normal hearing exposed to noise. (Author/DB)
