Ear microsuction is the modern safe way to clean ear canals. For blocked, waxy or infected ears.
Gentle, comfortable, safe – because we are skilled!
What is it?
Microsuction – is the term used for cleaning ear canals using the magnified view of a surgical microscope and a tiny vacuum cleaner and/or tiny instruments.
What does it involve?
The client lies on a bed, our Ear Nurse Therapists gently hold the ear canal entrance open, sometimes they use a plastic funnel to gain the best view. The microscope is then focused into the ear canal entrance. When we use the suction/instruments clients often say ‘this is weird’, they will tell us ‘it’s a bit noisy’ and ‘it tickles’.
What are the benefits?
Because we can see so well with the magnified vision, we can then remove wax/debris without touching the ear canal walls – hence a comfortable, safe procedure. The magnified views allow the Ear Nurse Therapist to assess the ear canal andeardrum to make a diagnosis.
