SoundEar’s vision is to develop and design noise measuring devices that do not require special previous knowledge or need to be accompanied by thick manuals, but can quickly and easily help our customers out with their noise related problem.
Safer operations by surgeons in quiet theatres
Noise stresses surgeons and puts their patients at risk. A study using SoundEar's noise meters in a German hospital shows that simple measures can reduce the noise level and halve the number of complications from surgeries.
Patients can avoid a number of complications if hospital employees learn to make less noise and use equipment that warns them of the noise level.
156 operations were included in the study, and they succeeded in lowering the median noise levels in the operating theatre from 63 to 59 dB, a reduction the staff would perceive as the noise level being halved
