Abstract

Maass, Baumgärtl and Lübbers showed in 1976, that oxygen is being transported from the tympanic cavity to the inner ear through the membrane of the round window. So far there has been a paucity of studies done on the quantitative and functional significance of this way of oxygen transport.
