Forthe past few years, noise pollution has been more and more serious, and it maylead to several diseases. While the humans expose to noise in quantity for along time, their blood pressure will change, and even cause changes in cardiacfunction. In our study, we attempt to find the relationship betweenoccupational noise and hypertension and impaired hearing, cardiac function. Itmay be helpful to obtain some useful information on occupational noise exposureof humans. The participants were divided into noisy group ≥90 dB A andnon-noisy group ≤70 dB A. We performed this research in an automobile manufacturingcompany of Chongqing, China during 2011-2012. Our study showed that there maybe positive associations between occupational noise and hypertension and impaired hearing,but no conclusion can be drawn between occupational noise and ECG.
