hearing loss of aging

Presbycusis Audiology The progressive loss of high pitch auditory discrimination seen in advanced age, affecting ±50% of those > age 75. See Hearing loss.
Hearing loss types
Conductive HL caused by damage to any mechanical components of the ear, eg accumulation of cerumen, disruption of tympanic membrane, fusion of one or more middle ear ossicles; conductive HLs may be amenable to surgery
Sensorineural HL due to a defect in the neural pathways, which may be at the level of the cochlea, auditory nerve, or in the cerebral cortex Etiology Infections–especially intrauterine, eg rubella, drug toxicity, eg aminoglycosides, and tumors, eg acoustic neuroma
Mixed HL due to a combination of mechanical and neural defects Etiology Down syndrome, cystic fibrosis, cerebral palsy

But this process stops at 80-Myr-old crust, suggesting to some that the crust there is conductively heated and uplifted.
Heat is gently transferred to the patient conductively and the temperature is continuously monitored at the interface between the pad and patient's skin.
* LazerSkinz impact/pressure sensor vest made with conductively coated fabric; and
Breadboarding A board with many small holes in it that are linked conductively by rows.
Also, in contrast to hot-tool welding, in which the interfaces to be welded are heated conductively by direct contact with a hot-tool, the heating is very localized.
The first conductively modified TPO (thermoplastic olefin) resin for electrostatically painted parts won top honors in the Materials category Ford Visteon used the Dexflex TPO resin for the electrostatically painted front fascia of the 1997 Ford DN101 Sable, and is also using it for the 1998 model year.
The rate at which heat is conductively transferred is defined by a conductive heat transfer coefficient.
Considerable quantities of heat are transferred conductively from the rock to the borehole, where cold seawater is circulated continuously to remove drilled-rock fragments.
The latter concept is that relatively robust two-stage cryocoolers can now achieve a temperature of 10 K, and magnets made with [Nb.sub.3]Sn can be conductively coupled to the cold stage of the cryocooler.
