ATSU-ASHS audiology students practice immittance audiometry

A.T. Still University-Arizona School of Health Sciences (ATSU-ASHS) second-year students of audiology practiced immittance audiometry testing during a recent clinical module.

Ediberto III Rodriguez, second-year audiology student, practices with Allie Adams, third-year audiology student.

“Immittance audiometry is a physiologic measure, the primary purpose of which is to determine the status of the tympanic membrane (eardrum) and middle ear via tympanometry, a graphic representation of middle ear function,” said Zarin Mehta, PhD, CCC-A, FAAA, associate professor, audiology. “The secondary purpose of this test is to evaluate acoustic reflex pathways, which include cranial nerves VII and VIII and the auditory brainstem.”

Sydney Shaughnessy, second-year audiology student, practices an exam with Terrance Yuen, third-year audiology student.
Casya Hickman-Jones, second-year audiology student, practices an exam with Karen Janssen, third-year audiology student, while Dr. Mehta observes.

“Recently, wideband tympanometry has become clinically available. It assesses middle ear function with multiple frequencies at the same time represented by a 3D image,” Dr. Mehta said. “This technology has the ability to detect a number of middle ear disorders that were missed by traditional tympanometry.”

Jovan Milanovic, second-year audiology student, reviews 3D results from the test with Daniel Watkins, third-year audiology student.
