Abstract/OtherAbstract:
With the microflow method the volume displacement of the tympanic membrane and its direction of movement can be recorded at stapedius reflex contraction. There is an outward or inward movement of the tympanic membrane, which is affected by changes in posture. The results indicate that the perilymphatic pressure in man varies with the posture and that these variations can be measured indirectly outside the tympanic membrane. This can only be done, however, on condition that there are no pressure variations across the tympanic membrane. This method opens up new ways of studying possible pressure changes in the inner ear in acute diseases.
