effects of visualizing noise in the hospital
Noise reduction sustained over time
”The device [SoundEar 3-300] acted as an isolated intervention to significantly reduce night-time ambient and peak sound levels, a change that was sustained after a four-month period.”
Noise reduction causes less postoperative complications
“Noise levels were reduced from 63 dB(A) to 59 dB(A). This significantly lowered the number of postoperative complications.”
comparing noise levels over time
“We are comparing the noise levels of rooms with the ear showing when there is too much noise [using SoundEar3-300] to the noise levels of rooms without the ear [using SoundEar3-320]. We can do this using the software, in which we can track noise levels over time for all the rooms in the NICU.”
