Special Issue "Health Care of Noise-Induced Hearing Loss"
A special issue of International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health (ISSN 1660-4601). This special issue belongs to the section "Public Health Statistics and Risk Assessment".
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 December 2021.
WHO estimates that 360 million people (5.3% of the world’s population) are living with disabling hearing loss, while around 15% of the world’s adult population have some degree of hearing loss. Hearing loss caused by exposure to recreational and occupational noise is the second most common form of hearing loss after presbycusis (age-related hearing loss). Noise-induced hearing loss can also be due to unsafe exposure to residential, social or military service-related noise. The aim of this Special Issue is to provide a forum for papers concerned with the prevention, screening, and treatment of noise-induced hearing loss. Disabling hearing loss is unequally distributed across the world, and papers dealing with comparative aspects of hearing prevention, assessments, and treatments throughout the world will also be considered. Methodological and clinical papers will be considered when they contribute to the understanding of aspects related to noise-induced hearing loss as described above.
