In course of the study, pH of secretions taken during operation from middle ear of 112 children suffering OMS was examined. Samples of serous, mucous and serous-mucous secretions were collected. Values of pH were determined using 6.4-8.0 and 8.2-10.0 test-papers produced by E. Merck. pH of all samples was alkaline. Mean value of pH of mucous and serous-mucous secretion was higher (8.55 and 8.33, respectively), than serous secretion (7.92). Positive correlation between the age of children and pH of secretions was noticed.
