Abstract

The recently published Oregon Tinnitus Data Archive can be viewed by anyone with Internet access and World Wide Web browser software. A dynamically changing document to be amplified and upgraded in future versions, at present the Archive summarizes records from 1630 patients with tinnitus seen between 1982 and 1992 at the Tinnitus Clinic of the Oregon Health Sciences University. The Archive has many features of standard journal publications but also has added advantages of extensive appendixes and other background information, as well as the ease of use and flexibility offered by hypertext documents. The data in the Archive can be used for a variety of clinical and research purposes such as development of prevalence estimates for medical conditions or etiologic circumstances associated with tinnitus, testing of clinical impressions and other hypotheses, and efforts to identify risk factors and possible causal agents for tinnitus.
