Abstract:

The objective of this project is to fully document the effects of acoustic impulses on the middle ear and on middle-ear muscle contractions MEMCs. This project will provide critical information on the middle ear musculature states during warned and unwarned exposures to acoustic impulses. This information is necessary in the development of new or revising existing damage risk criteria DRCs and health hazard assessment methods for exposure to high-level acoustic impulses such as experienced by users of military and civilian law enforcement weapon systems, civilian recreational hunting and shooting, and industrial high-level impulsive noises impacts and impulses.
