It has been suggested that pre-natal and or peri-natal hypoxia can cause permanent hearing loss as a result of interference with the generation of the endocochlear potential, especially if this interference occurs during the critical period of endocochlear potential development. This hypothesis was tested in 4 series of experiments: in neonatal rats exposed(More)
In order to determine if there is a relation between auditory threshold and oxygen availability, cats were anesthetized, paralyzed and ventilated with room air and with hypoxic gas mixtures. Auditory nerve-brain stem evoked response (ABR) thresholds and arterial blood oxygen levels [partial pressures (PaO2) and percent saturation (SaO2)] were determined.(More)
