Tympanometry is the measurement of how well the tympanic membrane (ear drum) and the middle ear system moves as air pressure is changed in the ear canal. Tympanometry was first introduced as a clinical procedure over 40 years ago. This course describes how the technique of tympanometry is performed and how tympanometry is used to identify middle ear disorders in children and adults.
