What Are the Parts of the Ear? | Ear Problems


This is a model of the human ear. Here we have the outer ear and here’s the
ear canal. This yellow is fat. This blue is cartilage and this is the outer
ear canal. Here is the eardrum. Behind the eardrum is the middle ear and behind
the middle ear is the inner ear. The outer ear in an adult is two-thirds bone
and one-third cartilage which is blue. In a child it’s reversed. At birth the outer ear canal is two-thirds
cartilage and only one-third bone. And this is where your wax is made. Sound waves come in and the eardrum vibrates. And there are three little bones of hearing
that take the sound energy that is impacting upon the eardrum and present it to the inner
ear. And what we can see in this model, this is
what your eardrum looks like and on the inside are the little bones of hearing. The inner ear has two parts. The organ of hearing which is curled up like
a snail called the cochlea and the organ of balance which is called the labyrinth or the
semicircular canals. The middle ear space contains air and the
air gets in through a tube called the Eustachian tube. The Eustachian tube connects the back of your
nose with your middle ear and the Eustachian tube allows air into your ear. Designed by God or Darwin depending upon which
one you prefer.
