To the Editor: A complaint of temporary deafness by a young mother (C.S.B.) after an outburst of screaming by an 11-month-old infant (J.A.B.) prompted one of us (L.E.S.) to measure sound intensity during episodes of spontaneous screaming by the infant. Measurements were made approximately 15 cm from the infant (the distance from an infant's mouth to a parent's ear when the infant is held) during episodes of spontaneous screaming, using a Decibels Sound Level Meter (Type 1565A. General Radio, Concord, Mass.). The As scale, which approximates the intensity appreciated by the human ear, was used for readings. Much to our. © 1983, Massachusetts Medical Society.
