This study aimed to develop Machine Learning (ML) tools to identify the WAI absorbance characteristics across different frequency-pressure regions in the normal middle ear and ears with otitis media with ... AbstractWideband Absorbance Immittance (WAI) has been available for more than a decade, however its clinical use still faces the challenges of limited understanding and poor interpretation of WAI results ... ., L.Z. and W.L. contributed to data collection. All authors read and approved the final version of the manuscript. F.Z. and J.W. were involved in data review and verification. ...doi:10.1038/s41598-021-89588-4 pmid:34017019 fatcat:6azfepgkufhm7fe66que2zns7u
In addition to the high prevalence of otitis media with effusion (OME), researchers are motivated to develop methods for early and accurate OME diagnosis because of the financial strain on the health care ... WBR patterns from 55 subjects (102 ears) with normal middle ear status and 39 subjects (57 ears) with varying degrees of middle ear pathology were measured. ... Otitis media is a general term for several different clinical conditions, which include acute otitis media (a rapid onset of middle ear infection and inflammation), and otitis media with effusion (OME) ...doi:10.14288/1.0101169 fatcat:s725krrwx5hvvecbns5i3yxwva
This study investigated whether wideband acoustic immittance (WAI) values differed significantly in a normal hearing young adult population based on gender, ethnicity, and instrument. ... hearing population and much smaller than the difference between normal and pathological ears indicating good reliability. ... His wisdom, penetrating questions, and enthusiasm for my progress made for a successful and enjoyable journey in the completion of this thesis. I am honored to have had the ...doi:10.14288/1.0300134 fatcat:vfan67tdqvbprk37wbrhaxf4ae
Multi-channel amplitude compression is designed and adjusted to compensate for the effects of threshold elevation and loudness recruitment, with the goal of making weak sounds audible and preventing intense ... Most sensorineural hearing loss is associated with several changes in the perception of sound, including: (1) loudness recruitment; (2) reduced frequency selectivity; (3) distorted/noisy sensations; (4 ... In Different conservative and surgical techniques are used to treat chronic otitis media with effusion (COME). ...fatcat:k22syqihnnemdlqyddkf5mhdae
