When considering how best to measure Eustachian tube (ET) function, the three primary functions of the ET should be considered: (1) gas transfer and pressure equalisation between the nasopharynx and middle ear (ME); (2) clearance of secretions from the ME through both muscular action and mucociliary transport; and (3) prevention of.
