Tympanometry: A quick test to assess middle ear function and middle ear health. This quick objective test requires a compliant patient to sit quietly, with no swallowing or talking for a few moments. A sterilized probe tip is inserted into the entrance of the ear canal to obtain a well-fitting seal. A gentle flow of air then helps to gently move the eardrum and middle ear bones and a graph (tympanogram) is generated on the equipment’s screen. The test is performed prior to the hearing assessment and helps to rule out or confirm any underlying middle ear fluid (glue ear or middle ear infection) or changes in middle ear function.
Specialized tests include Eustachian Tube Function and Acoustic Reflex Tests.
