Spanish term or phrase: oea
This is in a list of the different sections in a hospital built in Italy by a Spanish company. It states:

OEA e Salas operatorias 6 camas

No other info is provided.
The acronym may not actually be Spanish. I've already worked out one which wasn't.
Any ideas?
Thanks very much.

Reference information:
Otoacoustic Emissions (OAEs)

Types of Tests: Auditory Brainstem Response (ABR) | Otoacoustic Emissions (OAEs) | Pure-Tone Testing | Speech Testing | Tests of the Middle Ear

Otoacoustic emissions (OAEs) are sounds given off by the inner ear when the cochlea is stimulated by a sound. When sound stimulates the cochlea, the outer hair cells vibrate. The vibration produces a nearly inaudible sound that echoes back into the middle ear. The sound can be measured with a small probe inserted into the ear canal.

People with normal hearing produce emissions. Those with hearing loss greater than 25–30 decibels (dB) do not produce these very soft sounds. The OAE test is often part of a newborn hearing screening program. This test can detect blockage in the outer ear canal, as well as the presence of middle ear fluid and damage to the outer hair cells in the cochlea.
