Air Pressure Therapy Units, Middle Ear

Definition : Air pressure units (i.e., generators) designed for treatment of excess fluid volume and pressure in the middle ear (i.e., Meniere's disease). These devices consist of a low-pressure generator that delivers low-frequency, low-amplitude pressure pulses to the middle ear through a ventilation tube that was previously implanted into the patient's eardrum, between the external canal and the middle ear. The device administers automatically controlled pulses of air to increase the pressure within the middle ear, reducing fluid pressure in the inner ear. Middle ear pressure therapy units are used to alleviate the symptoms of Meniere's disease when other clinical treatments (e.g., administration of drugs) have failed.
