A review is presented of the research work performed at the Technische Universitat Dresden, dealing with the prejudicial influence of noise on audition. For the characteristic of the hearing stress due to noise, the integral of the temporary threshold shift (TTS) versus time-curve is introduced over the reversible range. An audition-damage model is derived from studies made at different noise loads as well as from retrospective investigations. In this model, the permanent threshold shift (PTS) is a function of a dose determined by noise and age. The sound pressure is evaluated here by an amplitude-dependent power index.

Furthermore, a report is given on intra- as well as inter-individual stress variations for stationary and impulsive noises, and also on animal experiments.
