  • 1.  Biology 120  Chapter 13: Special Senses: The Eye and Ear  By Juliet Lutakome-Nambiro
  • 2. Anatomy of the Ear Figure 13.13 Anatomy of the ear.Medical Terminology: A Living Language, 3/E ©2005 Pearson Education, Inc.Bonnie F. Fremgen Pearson Prentice HallSuzanne S. Frucht Upper Saddle River, NJ 07458
  • 3. Abbreviations: 1. Pressure equalizing tube (PE tube) Small tube surgically placed in a child’s eardrum to assist in drainage of trapped fluid and to equalize pressure between the middle ear cavity and the atmosphere.
  • 4. Contd. 2. eye, ear, nose and throat (EENT)
  • 5. Contd. 3. bone conduction (BC) Bone conduction is the conduction of sound waves to the inner ear through the bones of the skull.
  • 6. Contd. 4. both ears (AU) Just as we use two eyes to see in three dimensions, we use two ears to perceive the world of sound around us.
  • 7. Contd.5. otitis media (OM): Is an infection of the middle ear Seen frequently in children Is often preceded by an upper respiratory infection
  • 8. 6. emmetropia(EM) Is the state of normal vision or proper correlation between the refractive system of the eye and the axial length of the eyeball. rays of light entering the eye parallel to the optic axis being brought to focus exactly on the retina.
  • 9. Contd. 7. exotropia (XT)  Is a condition of strabismus in which the two eyes do not line up in the same direction, and therefore, do not look at the same object at the same time.
  • 10. Contd. 8. left eye (OS) OS stands for oculus sinister
  • 11. Contd. 9. extraocular movement (EOM) Eye movements are controlled by muscles innervated by cranial nerves III, IV and VI. Checked by having the patient look in all directions without moving their head and ask them if they experiences any double vision.
  • 12. Abbreviations 10. visual acuity (VA) Is acuteness or clearness of vision, which is dependent on the sharpness of the retinal focus within the eye and the sensitivity of the interpretative faculty of the brain.
