Eustachian tube function data in the Rhesus monkey, obtained by direct monitoring of middle ear pressure, indicate the range of values with normal and altered eustachian tube function. "Overflow pressure" and "locking phenomenon" data are presented. These tubal function data, in general, are similar to patterns found in human studies.
