Acoustic Impedance Tests

Objective tests of Middle Ear function based on the difficulty (Impedance) or ease (admittance) of Sound flow through the Middle Ear. These include static Impedance and dynamic Impedance (i.e., tympanometry and Impedance tests in conjunction with intra-aural Muscle Reflex elicitation). This term is used also for various components of Impedance and admittance (e.g., Compliance, conductance, reactance, resistance, susceptance).
