Abstract:

This study was designed to describe the hearing levels of both flight nurses and aeromedical technicians over time. A computer printout was received from the USAF Hearing Conservation Registry which depicted a three year period as the longest consecutive period with a sufficient population. From the data received, 60 aeromedical technicians and 62 flight nurses hearing levels were examined. Both flight nurses and aeromedical technicians showed stable hearing levels with no apparent hearing threshold shift to indicate noise-induced hearing loss.
