Key Features: Included throughout the texts are short paragraphs identified as "Technical Tips", "Key Concepts", "Things to Remember", "Points to Ponder", and "On the Soapbox". Interesting tidbits of information not quite relevant enough to include in the chapters, but yet too good to toss aside, are featured in the back of the book as "Endnotes". Infused with humor! Written in an accessible and easy-to-ready style to be welcoming to university faculty and their students by including not just reference information, but tools supported by research and clinical experience, presented in a way that was accessible to clinical students with little experience in the field. A handy companion for busy clinicians--a friendly resource where they can quickly find critical information needed for the next patient. Contains enough depth that even the serious hearing aid researcher would also find many pearls.
This practical guide gives occupational health nurses everything they need to know about setting up and managing hearing conservation programmes, as well as how to carry out the audiometric tests. The text fully covers the syllabus of BSA accredited courses for the certificate of competence in Industrial Audiometry and includes practical examples, case studies, sample audiograms and questionnaires for setting up case histories. As the BSA syllabus is based on the HSE’s guidelines, the book will be a useful training manual and up-to-date reference for Health and Safety professionals, Occupational Health professionals, and HSE inspectors.
