In todays fast paced practice, you need dependable equipment that is easy to use and provides you with dependable patient information. Appropriately diagnosing otitis media is now made easier with the MicroTymp3.
Whether fluid in the ear is visible or not, the MicroTymp3 produces an accurate, objective measurement of middle ear status for patients of all ages, including infants less than six months of age.
In addition to otitis media, the MicroTymp3 also helps detect these other pathologies: Perforated tympanic membrane, Patent tympanostomy, Ossicular disruption, Otosclerosis, Tympanosclerosis and Cholesteatoma.
Early Hearing Detection
It has long been recognized that unidentified hearing loss at birth can adversely affect speech and language development as well as academic achievement and social-emotional development. Historically, moderate to severe hearing loss in young children was not detected until well beyond the newborn period, and it was not unusual for diagnosis of milder hearing loss and unilateral hearing loss to be delayed until children reached school age.
Despite the fact that approximately 95% of newborn infants have their hearing screened in the United States, almost half of newborn infants who do not pass the initial screening do not have appropriate follow-up to either confirm the presence of a hearing loss and/or initiate appropriate early intervention services.
With the rapid implementation of universal newborn hearing screening (UNHS) programs, a test of middle-ear function for infants is urgently needed. Recent evidence suggests that 1 kHz tympanometry may be effective. Normative data are presented for newborn intensive care unit (NICU) graduates tested at a mean age of 3.9 weeks (Study 1) and full-term infants tested at 2€“4 weeks (Study 2) who passed an otoacoustic emissions (OAE) screen.
Included in the package is the MicroTymp®3 Handle, Battery, Printer/Charger, Tip Box w/ 2 tips of each size, 1-year warranty.
