5 in. A 100-Hz tone has a wavelength of about 11 ft. ). Wavelength has a great deal to do with sound penetration. For example, if someone is playing a stereo too loudly several Figure 2-3 Diagram showing wavelength in relation to other components of a sound wave. (Adapted from Van Bergeijk et al. ) Page 11 rooms away, the bass notes will be heard clearly, but the high notes of violins or trumpets will be attenuated by intervening walls. Low-frequency sounds (long wavelengths) are extremely difficult to attenuate or to absorb, and they require very different acoustic treatment from high-frequency sounds of short wavelengths.

Before providing a similar overview for sensorineural hearing loss, Chapter 9 includes a new summary of the latest concepts in cochlear biology essential for understanding occupational hearing loss, and sensorineural hearing loss of other causes. Chapter 10 presents the problems of mixed, central, and functional hearing loss, including new information on auditory processing disorders. Chapter 11 provides a few updates to the classic chapter on systemic causes of hearing loss and summarizes not only the most common important hereditary causes of hearing loss, but also many of the systemic causes of sensorineural hearing loss including hypertension, diabetes, syphilis, and many other conditions.

When SPL is written, it tells us both the reference level and the phenomenon being measured. The other important reference level is used in audiometry and is known as zero decibels (0 dB) of hearing loss or average normal hearing. This level is not the same as that used as a base for noise measurement. Rather, it is known as hearing threshold level, or HTL. In the middle-frequency range (around 3000 Hz), it is 10 dB above the reference level known as acoustical zero. In testing hearing with an audiometer, 40-dB loss in hearing on the audiogram means that the individual requires 40 dB more of sound pressure than the average normal person to be able to hear the tone presented.
