Tympanogram

A tympanogram is a test that is used to evaluate the ear. During this test, air pressure is placed against the ear drum (tympanic membrane) to determine if it moves in and out normally. At the same time, a sound is introduced that causes a reflex of the stapedius muscle, which is a small muscle in the middle ear that functions to dampen the motion of the stapes in response to very loud sounds, thus protecting the inner ear from acoustic damage.
