Eardrum - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

In human anatomy, the eardrum, or tympanic membrane, is a thin, cone-shaped membrane that separates the external ear from the middle ear in humans and other tetrapods. Its function is to transmit sound from the air to the ossicles inside the middle ear, and then to the oval window in the fluid-filled cochlea. Hence, it ultimately converts and amplifies vibration in air to vibration in fluid. The malleus bone bridges the gap between the eardrum and the other ossicles.[1]

Ear Function & Hearing Mechanism

Notes: Here we have three middle bones again. The arm of the malleus is attached to the eardrum, and the footplate of the stapes is attached to the oval window of the cochlea (inner ear). What they are doing is they transmit vibrations of the eardrum into the cochlea. But here we have a problem. Because the impedance of air and impedance of liquid is really different. Which one is bigger? Impedance in the liquid is much bigger than that of air.

Virtual reality training for improving the skills needed for performing surgery of the ear, nose or throat | Cochrane

This review evaluated whether surgeons trained in virtual reality simulation achieved outcomes for their patients that were equivalent to, or better than, those obtained through conventional training methods. It also evaluated whether virtual reality training helped surgeons acquire equivalent (or better) technical skills required to achieve good surgical outcomes, or the non-technical skills to make good decisions and lead the operating room team. Another consideration evaluated was the level of experience of participants in the trials, given that some of the study participants were surgeons in training, while others were medical students.
