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 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.
