Clinical instruments currently in use for middle-ear evaluation cannot measure many important acoustic properties of the middle ear because of the complexity of these measurements.

Prevention programs can be effective in reducing the incidence of hearing loss, pg 45
Researchers say hearing loss prevention programs that educate people on appropriate use of ear protection, ways to reduce noise exposure, and the effects of ototoxic medications can reduce the incidence of noise- and ototoxic-induced hearing loss.

Poor implementation of hearing protection programs and a lack of audiometric testing during medical treatment leave patients vulnerable to unrecognized and untreated hearing loss until speech communication is impaired. Ultimately, hearing loss prevention requires education to reduce occupational and recreational noise exposure, appropriate audiometric testing to identify hearing loss early, and counseling on the risks and
