Title: Hearing loss with frequent diving (deaf divers)
Author: Edmonds, C
Abstract: An audiometric survey was performed on a group of professional abalone divers, all of whom had experienced a great deal of exposure to dysbaric conditions. The results of this survey revealed that, even allowing for the very liberal requirements of the Australian standards for divers, over 60percent had an unacceptable sensorineural, high frequency deafness. In half of these cases it was unilateral, and half bilateral. Making allowance for age, over 70percent had evidence of hearing loss to a degree considered by the National Acoustic Laboratories to be compensatable.
