The article Exposure to occupational noise and cardiovascular disease in the United States: the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey 1999-2004 in Occupational and Environmental Medicine (Gan, Wen Qi, Hugh W Davies, Paul A Demers. “Exposure to occupational noise and cardiovascular disease in the United States: the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey 1999-2004.” Occupational and Environmental Medicine 68:3 (2011) 183-190.) discusses a study which looked at the effects of long-term loud noise levels in the workplace. It was found that loud noise was associated with a nearly three times increase in the prevalence of angina pectoris and a double in the prevalence of coronary heart disease and isolated diastolic hypertension. Has there been any attention given to on-site testing for occupational cardiovascular disease in factories or other workplaces with high noise levels?
