The basic function of the middle ear is to adapt the air impedance to that of the liquids of the inner ear. This adaptation is performed by a system of three small bones: malleus, incus, and stapes, transferring mechanical vibrations caused by the sound wave on the eardrum to the oval window. This ossicular chain gives a mechanical amplification ratio of about 27 dB associated to the lever system that it forms and the surface ratio between the eardrum and the oval window (2). Two small muscles are also connected to this mechanical system to prevent damages when in the presence of loud sounds.
