After the questionnaires were returned the employees were sent to a department in an Audiology Clinic where basic audiological evaluations were carried out in an acoustic booth which included the following: Meatoscopy (otoscope made by Heine[R]), Tone Audiometry covering frequencies from 250 to 8000 Hz, Speaking Tests (audiometry, the Grason-Stadler[R] brand, model number GSI-61) and Imitanciometry (the equipment is from the Interacoustics[R] brand, model AT 235h).
Excluded from the research were patients with altered meatoscopy at the time of evaluation; with a history of middle ear infections; and who have other risk factors for hearing loss, among them: exposure to noise and/or ototoxic chemicals; severe cranial injury; history of infectious diseases; radiotherapy in head and neck and chemotherapy; family history of hearing loss.
As is standard practice, all of the patients submitted to hearing tests were first submitted to anamnesis, meatoscopy, and tonal and vocal audiometry.
The selected study subjects were teenagers from 7th and 8th municipal school grades who agreed in participating in this research, with the following inclusion criteria: cognitive skills to respond the evaluations, audibility thresholds compatible with normal hearing, meatoscopy with no alterations, absence of middle ear and TEOAEs present in both ears.
