Clinical Protocol for Evaluating Pathology Induced by Low Frequency Noise Exposure  

Author:  | Health, Noise

Summary:
Segments of the general population who complain about infrasound & low frequency noise (ILFN) in their homes or in their workplaces continue to increase. These individuals often complain about similar sets of concurrent symptoms, and frequently attribute their ailments directly to ILFN exposure. Oftentimes, however, routine clinical evaluations of these individuals reveal no apparent dysfunction, and patients with persistent complaints are subsequently referred to psychology or psychiatry health professionals. The goal herein is to present an objective clinical protocol that scientifically evaluates these complaints, leading to the elimination of malingerers, and to the proper medical assistance of those developing ILFN-induced lesions.
