can be either temporary or permanent, but typically always has some kind
of long-term effect.
Two Forms of Hearing Loss
There are two forms of hearing loss that can be caused by injury. The first
type occurs from a small, almost insignificant, amount of noise that results
from an intense and sudden exposure to sound. This kind of noise injury
can cause temporary or permanent hearing loss. The cause of this kind
of acoustic damage is usually from a sudden noise, such as nearby fireworks
or a gunshot. It can also be caused by a loud concert. Sounds will often
sound muffled and unclear.
The other type of hearing loss results from chronic exposure to noise.
Chronic exposure is a series of small noises that occur over a period
of time and gradually cause damage to an individual's hearing. This
is a less-intense form of hearing loss but can cause more intense and
significant long-term damage. Repeated exposure to loud trucks or listening
to loud music often can cause this form of acoustic damage.
