  45. Describing tympanic membrane abnormalities for results of the Otoscopic Inspection
  1. a NOT to diagnose a disorder, but to assess the outer ear and TM and middle ear for something obviously atypical
    (can assist in interpreting other audiological evaluation results)
  2. b stiffened middle ear system.
    normal shape, peak pressure, LOW peak admittance: < .3 ml
    s: shallow.
  3. c Type B with abnormally large ear canal volume
  4. d TM is intact, there's no ear canal obstruction, but there's little to no mobility of the TM
  5. e eustachian tube dysfunction.
    -non-specific finding
    -may reflect oncoming of otitis media
  6. f 7 months
  7. g structural defect of the ear, head or neck
    ear canal abnormalities
    tympanic membrane abnormalities
  8. h opposition to flow of acoustic energy at the middle ear
  9. i 0 daPa.
    admittance (passing of acoustic energy) declines as the air pressure moves away from 0, either positively or negatively.
