Abstract

The interaction of noise exposure with other variables is reviewed. For the case of the interaction of noise with other variables that produce behavioral threshold shifts, the application of a newly developed model is described and demonstrated. This model, referred to as the modified power-law model, provides an accurate prediction of the combined effects of two threshold-elevating factors. The model accounts for the interaction of post-exposure threshold shift with pre-exposure hearing loss, whether the hearing loss was a pre-existing permanent loss or a pre-existing temporary loss. The model's application is demonstrated for multiple exposures to steady-state noise in which each exposure lasts as short as 12 min or as long as 6 h. Finally, implications of the model's application to the interaction of noise with other ototraumatic agents are reviewed.
