The client had been suffering from a ‘blocked ear’ and whistling from his hearing aid due to the deep impacted ear wax build-up. Unfortunately this was made worse by the inappropriate use of cotton buds.
Using the CLEARWAX iCLEARscope video oto-endoscope the ear wax was quickly, easily and comfortably removed under direct and complete view at all times.
There was some residual ear wax remaining on his eardrum which had stuck on after being pushed onto it by using cotton buds. This doesn’t require removal and will simply and naturally migrate out of the ear now the blocked ear wax has been cleared. Attempting to remove this ear wax would unlikely to have any clinical benefit and instead prove to be uncomfortable for the client.
