The BHI Calculator
gives the Binaural Hearing Impairment, according to the method of the American Medical Association (AMA), when an individual's audiometric thresholds are entered.
The ARHL (age-related hearing loss) Calculator
gives expected median and 95th percentile values for the average of the AMA speech frequencies (0.5, 1, 2, and 3 kHz), when an individual's age and sex are entered.
The NIPTS Calculator
gives expected median and 95th percentile values for noise-induced permanent threshold shift, for frequencies between 0.5 and 6 kHz, as well as the AMA speech frequency average, when an individual's noise exposure level and duration are entered.
The STS Expected Contributions Calculator
gives the median expected ARHL and NIPTS during an OSHA STS (standard threshold shift interval. Inputs are sex, age at the beginning and end of the interval, and noise exposure level and duration prior to and during the STS interval.
