These can result from turbulent blood flow near the cochlea or can be generated by the cochlea itself, in which case they are referred to as otoacoustic emissions (see below and Chapter 7). Although usually of low intensity, they can be heard by others when in close proximity or by means of a stethoscope. Subjective tinnitus - ringing in the ears - is the perception of phantom sounds when no actual sound is present; this is the form typically meant when tinnitus is used as a term without a modifier.

The fluids in the cochlear ducts are not compressible, so inward deflections of the oval window produced by sounds transmitted by the stapes can only occur if there is a relief structure - the round window. These two membranes operate 180° out of phase, so that an inward oval window deflection instantaneously produces an outward round window deflection. The cochlear ducts contain fluids that differ by compartment. The scala tympani and scala vestibuli contain perilymph, which is similar to cerebrospinal fluid and extracellular fluid - relatively low in K+ (7 mM) and high in Na+ (140 mM).

1). Non-hereditary congenital causes of sensorineural deafness include perinatal anoxia, dystocia, and intrauterine exposure to ototoxic chemicals or drugs. Later onset sensorineural deafness may result from exposure to ototoxic chemicals or drugs, otitis interna, aging (presbycusis), noise or physical trauma, and anesthetic procedures. The cause of non-hereditary sensorineural deafness is often unknown. A useful classification scheme for describing inner ear abnormalities has been proposed that is based on identified hereditary mutations observed in mice (Steel and Bock, 1983; Steel, 1995), where well over 70 identified mutations are known, as well as on observations in humans and other species that include the dog and cat.
