AEDO C. & CUELLAR M. G. Exposure to non-occupational noise. From physiology to auditory evaluation and normative in Chile. J. health med. sci., 5(3):141-147, 2019.

ABSTRACT: According to data from the world health organization, there would be around 470 million people with hearing damage from exposure to intense noise, a number that could double in the next 30 years. Although in our country has developed a protocol for workers exposed to noise, there is a group of people with many risk factors to could suffer hearing loss associated with exposure to non-occupational noise (commonly called recreational). This work will analyze the physiology of acute and chronic noise exposure, its clinical evaluation and the implications of exposure to non-occupational noise in different sectors of the population.

KEY WORDS: cochlear hair cells, hearing loss, noise.
