Third, the promise of reference interval measurement in support of clinical measurement has been practically realized for some applications and is feasible for others.
As can be seen from Table 2, the time interval measurement was most stable using the algorithms of the first and second order derivatives of the waves peaks, although as observed in Table 3, the average values were significantly different (t = 7.5, p <0.001).
It is defined as sound pressure level of continuous steady sound that within a time interval measurement t=[t.sub.2]-[t.sub.1], has the same mean square sound pressure as a reference sound, which varies over time.
