The effect of static tympanic pressure gradients on hearing sensitivity was studied by introducing relative underpressure of 5, 10 and 15 cmH2O in the middle ear cavity of six normal ears. A self-recording Békésy audiometer was used to measure the hearing threshold shifts during middle ear pressure equilibrations. The threshold loss was most prominent for 0… CONTINUE READING
