Bridging Hands Camps is a fully inclusive and accessible camp for young adults living in the DC area.Deaf Access Simcoe Muskoka is a charitable, non-profit organization that works alongside culturally deaf, oral deaf, deafened and hard of hearing people of all ages, their families, and the community throughout the region.On an audiogram, the resulting configuration has a distinctive notch, called a 'noise' notch.
But for many practical purposes, normative hearing is defined by a frequency versus amplitude graph, or audiogram, charting sensitivity thresholds of hearing at defined frequencies.
Because of the cumulative impact of age and exposure to noise and other acoustic insults, 'typical' hearing may not be normative.
Exposures to other ototoxins (such as pesticides, some medications including chemotherapy agents, solvents, etc.) can lead to greater susceptibility to noise damage, as well as causing its own damage. Since noise damage is cumulative over long periods of time, persons who are exposed to non-workplace noise, like recreational activities or environmental noise, may have compounding damage from all sources.
Some national and international organizations and agencies use an exchange rate of 4 d B or 5 d B.
0 d B does not represent absence of sound, but rather the softest sound an average unimpaired human ear can hear; some people can hear down to -5 or even -10 d B. But the ear doesn't hear all frequencies equally well; hearing sensitivity peaks around 3000 Hz.
