Software, Physiologic Analysis, Middle Ear
Definition : Physiologic analysis software designed to operate computerized middle ear analyzers, control/monitor a limited number of their functions, and/or process data obtained while testing. This software is intended to work with one or a few models of middle ear analyzers, usually from the same manufacturer. The software performs a variety of algorithms to facilitate the operation and analysis of the measurements performed while assessing middle ear data, and/or while processing and or receiving information from hospital information systems. Middle ear analyzer software is not usually available separate from the analyzer but may be updated (i.e., through the release of modified versions) during the life of the analyzer. Dedicated middle ear analysis software is available for several different techniques (e.g., impedance tympanometry, acoustic reflectometry) used for assessment of the middle ear characteristics (e.g., obstructions, stiffness or flaccidity of the tympanic membrane).
