Auditory injuries related to blast exposure are the focus of the May/June issue of ASHA Access Audiology. Most reports on widespread blast-related acoustic trauma involve military personnel and emphasize emergency care. But other groups can be affected, too, as Baylor University communications sciences and disorders students and faculty found when they participated in a community hearing screening five months after an industrial explosion in West, Texas.
Referral rates indicated that auditory effects of blast exposure produced lingering concerns across the small community and required ongoing audiologic outreach and education. Referral rates were much higher among people within hearing distance of the blast.
