If the one infant with bilateral profound sensorineural hearing loss who had been treated with amikacin (a known ototoxic
antibiotic) before the hearing testing is excluded, the proportion of infants with sensorineural hearing loss was 5.
Test frequencies associated with upper limits that are below 10 dB HL, indicated by the horizontal reference line, show sufficient evidence that interferon beta-1a is not ototoxic
in relation to no DMT use at that audiometric test frequency.
Especially premature infants have the potential to be exposed to multiple risk factors including hyperbilirubinemia, use of mechanical ventilation, sepsis and use of ototoxic
drugs and the frequency of hearing deficit increases as the frequency of morbidity including retinopathy of prematurity and chronic lung disease increases.

Combined exposure to noise and ototoxic
The remainder are either infectious (with congenital cytomegalovirus infection being the leading culprit), caused by maternal ototoxic
drug use during pregnancy, or idiopathic.
The selected patients had no history of ear diseases or trauma, nor did they have ear surgery, abnormal ear examination, use ototoxic
drugs and/or renal failure.
Aminoglycosides are known for their nephrotoxic and irreversible ototoxic
It is inactivated by iodine, should not be used on mucous membranes, may cause chemical burns in neonates and is ototoxic
(harmful to the ear) (Fletcher et al 2007, Milstone et al 2008, Sivathasan et al 2010).
Subsequent chapters address audiological monitoring for individuals exposed to ototoxic
drugs; procedures for evaluation; current hearing protection and enhancement devices, regulations, procedures for selecting and fitting devices, and training workers in the use of devices; education and training; evaluating effectiveness of a program; procedures for musicians and treatment for music-induced hearing loss; conserving hearing in nonwork settings; worker's compensation; support and treatment for workers with hearing loss; hearing conservation in educational settings; and future trends like the use of antioxidants and gene therapy.
Individuals with any metabolic disorder, perforated eardrum, conductive deafness, history of use of ototoxic
drugs, deafness of sudden onset and without their previous audiometric record were excluded from the study.
Common causes of sensorineural hearing loss include presbyacusis, chronic suppurative otitis media, Meniere's disease, ototoxic
medications and noise exposure.
