Hearing loss among high school farm students



Hearing loss among high school farm students



American Journal of Public Health 79(5): 619-622



To study the prevalence of hearing loss among teen-aged farm children in central Wisconsin (USA), audiometric threshold testing of 872 vocational agriculture students was carried out over a three-year period. The results indicate an increased prevalence of hearing loss among students actively involved in farm work, as compared to their peers not involved in farm work. Findings also suggest that use of hearing protection may reduce the risk of hearing loss among students who work on the farm, although few students report the use of such devices. These data also suggest that the hearing loss often observed in adult farmers may begin in childhood.
