The tympanometer makes it possible to differentiate a normal eardrum from a damaged or malformed eardrum: bulging eardrum, open eardrum, detached eardrum etc. To be more precise, it is a device that is used to diagnose certain problems of the ear, such as the presence of liquid or a perforation of the eardrum. It can also be used to measure the movement of the eardrum in response to sound. This information is important because it can help prevent hearing loss. For example, if there is too much fluid in the ear, this can lead to an increase in pressure in the eardrum, and for an eardrum to have too much pressure equals a decrease or even a deterioration in the ability to hear. On the other hand, if the eardrum does not move as it should when stimulated by sound, this may indicate a condition such as otosclerosis. In this case, the eardrum becomes very rigid and can no longer vibrate normally.
To take these measurements, the tympanometer sends sound waves into the ear canal, which bounce off the eardrum and return to the device. The device then measures the vibration of the eardrum in response to the sound waves.
The eardrum is a thin cone-shaped membrane that separates the middle ear from the outer ear. Without detailing theanatomy of the eardrum, it is the organ that receives sound waves and vibrates according to their frequencies. This vibration is transmitted to the bones of the middle ear, which amplify the sound and send it to the inner ear. The inner ear contains the cochlea, a spiral-shaped organ filled with fluid. The cochlea converts vibrations into electrical impulses, which are sent to the brain via the auditory nerve. The brain then interprets these impulses as sound.
The ear examination usually begins with a visual inspection. The doctor should first look for any obvious and noticeable problems such as a buildup of earwax, an object in the ear or a rash. Next, the doctor will use an instrument called an otoscope to see more clearly inside the ear. Finally, the doctor uses a tympanometer to measure the vibration of the right and then the left eardrum. It is after this complete examination that it will be possible to determine if the patient has a hearing problem or not, the role of the tympanometer is to determine if the patient has a normal tympanometry.
The otoscope and tympanometer are two devices used to observe the condition of the ears, but they function differently and have different purposes. The otoscope allows you to look into the ear and get a glimpse of the inside of the ear canal, while the tympanometer measures the air pressure in the ear canal to detect a possible problem in the eardrum or certain infections. The two devices are complementary and are usually used together.
Ear infections develop when bacteria build up inside the middle ear due to fluid build-up. Bacteria that normally live in our mouth and nose come into contact with the mucus in our eardrums when we blow our nose or yawn. The bacteria then enter through the Eustachian tube that connects the middle ear to the throat. It is important to understand that bacteria cannot travel from outside the body to the middle ear via the respiratory system. Therefore, the infection usually begins with germs from the mouth coming into contact with the mucus in the eardrum. Once the bacteria enter the middle ear, they cause inflammation that leads to ear pain and discharge.
