The cornea performs this function.Well done!The Aging EyeTears alteredEyes dryerLens more rigidRetinal changes Less adaptable to lightImpaired night and peripheral vision Impaired depth perceptionCommon Diseases and DisordersDisorder/DiseaseDescription AstigmatismCornea or lens has abnormal shape; blurred images Dry eye syndromeResults from a decreased production of the oil within the tearsEctropinEversion of lower eyelidCommon Diseases and DisordersDisorder/DiseaseDescription EntropionInversion of lower eyelidNystagmusRapid, involuntary eye movementsRetinal detachmentLayers of retina separate; medical emergencyApply Your KnowledgeWhat vision changes can occur in the elderly patient?ANSWER: An elderly patient may have difficulty seeing because of drooping eyelids. Focusing may be more difficult because less light enters the eye. He may have difficulty distinguishing colors due to yellowing of the lens. Vision may be fuzzy because of changes in the retina. Night vision can become impaired. The patient may see floaters or “sparks.”Nice job!The Ear and Senses of Hearing and EquilibriumExternal earAuricle (pinna) - collects sound wavesExternal auditory canalLined with hairs and glands that produce cerumenGuides sound wave to the tympanic membrane which separates external ear and middle earEarThe Ear and Senses of Hearing and Equilibrium (cont.)Middle earEar ossiclesMalleusIncusStapesOssicles Vibrate Hit the oval windowEarThe Ear and Senses of Hearing and Equilibrium (cont.)Middle ear (cont.)Eustachian tubeConnects middle ear to throatEqualizes pressure on eardrumOval window – separates middle ear from inner earEarAuricle (pinna)External EarMiddle Ear Inner Ear External ear canalTympanic membrane Oval window OssiclesStapesIncusMalleusLabyrinthVestibule Cochlea Eustachian tube Back The Ear and Senses of Hearing and Equilibrium (cont.)Inner ear – labyrinth of communicating chambersSemicircular canals ~ equilibriumVestibule ~ equilibrium CochleaHearing receptors Organ of Corti – organ of hearingInner earSemicircular canals CochleaOval window Vestibule Cochlear nerve Back The Ear and Senses of Hearing and Equilibrium (cont.)Head movementActivates equilibrium and hearing receptorsVestibular nerves transmit information Cerebrum interprets information and advises the body to make adjustmentsApply Your KnowledgeMatching: ___ Pinna A.

Semicircular canalsHGFDCBAEANSWER:Supear!The Hearing ProcessExternal earCollect sound wavesChannels waves to the tympanic membraneTympanic membrane vibratesMiddle ear – ossicles amplify vibrationsThe Hearing Process (cont.)Inner earAmplified waves bend hairs lining cochleaMovement of hairs trigger nerve impulsesImpulses are transmitted by auditory nerve to the brain for interpretationThe Hearing Process (cont.)Bone conductionAlternate sound pathway to inner earBones of the scull conduct sound wavesIdentification of hearing problemsNormal bone conductionProblem likely in middle or external ear Apply Your KnowledgeHow do we hear?ANSWER: Sound waves are collected by the external ear and are funneled down the ear canal to the tympanic membrane. The waves make the tympanic membrane vibrate. The ossicles amplify these vibrations which enter the inner ear and cause movements of the hairs that line the cochlea. These movements trigger nerve impulses which are sent to the brain via the auditory nerve. The brain perceives the impulses as sound.Great Answer!The Aging EarExternal ear LargerCerumen drierCanal narrowsMiddle earEardrum shrinksJoints between ossicles degeneratesInner ear – less sensitive to position changesHow to Recognize Hearing Problems in InfantsInfants to 4 monthsStartled by loud noisesRecognize mother’s voice4 to 8 monthsRegularly follow soundsBabble at people8 to 12 monthsRespond to the sound of their nameRespond to “no”Common Diseases and Disorders of the EarDisorder/DiseaseDescriptionAcoustic NeuromaBenign tumor of the cranial nerve involved in hearing and balance; commonly causes gradual hearing loss in one earCerumen impactionBuild up of wax within external auditory canal with some degree of hearing loss due to blocked sound wavesCommon Diseases and Disorders of the EarDisorder/DiseaseDescriptionHearing lossDeafness; the loss of the ability to hear sounds at normal levels. Conductive – blockage of sound wavesSensorineural – damage to auditory nerveCommon Diseases and Disorders of the Ear (cont.)Disorder/DiseaseDescriptionOtitis Otitis externa Otitis media Otitis internaInflammation of the ear Swimmers’ earMiddle ear infection; common infectionLabyrinthitis; inner ear infectionOsteosclerosisImmobilization of the stapes; common cause of conductive hearing lossPresbycusisHearing loss due to aging processApply Your KnowledgeTrue or False:___ Otitis media is also called swimmers’ ear.___ Presbycusis is hearing loss due to the aging process.___ Otitis interna is an inflammation of the labyrinth.___ Otosclerosis is the immobilization of the stapes. Conductive hearing loss is caused by damage to the auditory nerve. Labyrinthitis often causes nausea and vertigo.TTTFANSWER:externaExcellent!Sensorineural FTIn Summary35.1 Olfactory receptors – the sense receptors for the sense of smell – are found in the olfactory organ located in the upper part of the nasal cavity. 31.2 Gustatory receptors are found on the taste buds, which are located on the papillae (bumps) of the tongue.In Summary35.3 The eye is composed of three layers. The sclera is the outer protective layer and includes the cornea. The middle vascular layer is the choroid consisting of the iris, pupil, ciliary body, and lens, and is the area of light regulation and focusing. The innermost layer is the retina containing the rods and cones, the optic nerve, and the optic disk. This is where the nerve impulse is picked up and brought to the brain for interpretation. The accessory organs are the orbits, eyelids, conjunctivas, lacrimal apparatus, and extrinsic eye muscles, all of which are protective for the eye. In Summary (cont.)35.4 The cornea, lens, and fluids focus light on the retina. The retina converts the image into nerve impulses that the optic nerve transmits to the brain for interpretation.35.5 There are many common diseases and disorders of the eyes with varied signs, symptoms, and treatments. Some of these include astigmatism, dry eye syndrome, ectropion, entropion, nystagmus, and retinal detachment.In Summary (cont.)35.6 There are three parts to the ear. The external ear includes the auricle or pinna and the external auditory canal to the tympanic membrane. The middle ear begins at the tympanic membrane and ends at the oval window and includes the ear ossicles. The inner ear is composed of the labyrinth and contains the organ of Corti as well as perilymph and endolymph – the fluids of hearing. The semicircular canals and vestibule in the inner ear function in the body’s equilibrium and balance, sending impulses to the vestibular nerves, which bring information to the cerebrum for interpretation.In Summary (cont.)35.7 The outer ear collects sound waves and channels them to the tympanic membrane, which vibrates. The vibrations are amplified by the ear ossicles and enter the inner ear and cochlea. The movements of the hairs in the cochlea trigger nerve impulses that the auditory nerve transmits to the brain.35.8 There are many common diseases and disorders of the ears with varied signs, symptoms, and treatments. Some of these include acoustic neuroma, cerumen impaction, hearing loss, otitis, otitis externa, otitis media, otitis interna, otosclerosis, and presbycusis.Every closed eye is not sleeping, and every open eye is not seeing. ~ Bill CosbyEnd of Chapter 35
