Die Richtungsänderung der Druckveränderung und die Tympanometrie-Kurven

The change of the pressure direction and the tympanogram curves


The effect of the change of the pressure direction (negative to positive and vise versa) on the compliance curve (impedance bridge) and on the susceptance and conductance curves (Oto-admittance meter) is described.

The results are discussed in relation to the literature and the clinical value of them.
