>>Has anyone heard of airbags causing noise-induced hearing loss during a 
motor-vehicle accident?  I did a search of the published literature and 
came up with absolutely nothing.<<

I spoke with Dr. Jack Vernon about my tinnitus and I seem to recall him
mentioning during our conversation that the bags have a 130 dB blast of
sound. 

I would call the ATA. Somehwere, maybe there, I read that there should
be included with the instruction on the airbag that temporary hearing
loss could occur.
