[7,8] They found that perfusion of air into the scala tympani resulted in a drastic decrease in the cochlear microphonics and in the amplitude of the compound action potential. [7] The endocochlear DC potential, however, seemed to be highly resistant to air and was not affected until the duration of the perfusion exceeded 30 minutes.
