Welch Allyn MacroView Otoscope Demo Video
examining the ear is one of the primary
methods used for diagnosing patient
complaints for the entire ear nose
throat complex the otoscope helps you
view the ear canal and the tympanic
membrane with clarity the basic steps
are the same for any otoscope
but we’ll be showing you how to use our
Welch Allen macro view otoscope which
allows you to see three times the area
of the ear canal in tympanic membrane
within a traditional scope in a single
view there are two common ways to hold
otoscope and it’s all a matter of
preference some clinicians choose to
hold the otoscope like a hammer gripping
the power handle between your thumb and
forefinger close to the light source for
more control some clinicians choose to
hold the otoscope like a pencil between
the thumb and the forefinger with the
older aspect of the hand resting firmly
but gently against the patient’s cheek
with any ear exam you’ll want the
patient to sit down and slightly tilt
their head away from you to obtain
easier access to their ear turn the
scope on at full intensity align the
green marks on the focus wheel to ensure
you’re operating at the default position
attach a new disposable ear tip or
speculum it’s best practice to examine
the healthy ear first this allows you to
see the patient’s normal ear anatomy and
compare to the other ear while helping
to prevent the spread of infection
straighten the outer ear canal to make
insertion of the speculum easier guide
the otoscope into the patient’s ear to
view the canal in tympanic membrane
adjust the focus wheel during the
examination if necessary with the basic
otoscope may need to pan around more to
get a complete view after the
examination the used disposable speculum
should be removed and discarded twist
the speculum off by hand or rotate the
macro view tip grip to eject the
speculum the insulator bulb can be used
to help determine if there is fluid
behind the eardrum which can be a sign
of infection using well challenged soft
seal tips can help provide a better seal
against the ear canal wall making it
easier to see movement of the tympanic
use the insulator bulb to gently puff
air at the thin membrane

Can an otoscope see earwax?
If the individual has a visual ear infection, the answer is yes. In some cases, the individual may have a middle ear infection that is accompanied by an earwax build-up. In this case, the otoscope can still see the wax, albeit small and soft. Usually, however, this does not result in a proper diagnosis because the physician has to be close enough to the ears for him/her to be able to ascertain whether the individual actually has a middle ear infection or not. In this case, if the doctor were to do this, the otoscope can indeed see the earwax.
The otoscope is a medical tool that has evolved from the use of the magnifying otoscope first used in ancient Greece. Originally, the otoscope was designed to help the physician to examine the inner parts of the body, especially the teeth. Today, the otoscope is often utilized to examine the ears as well. Sometimes, the patient will ask the physician if he or she can look into the ears and determine whether or not the individual has a middle ear infection or not. If the doctor determines that the individual indeed has a middle ear infection, he or she can use the otoscope to view the wax buildup. In many cases, the otoscope can actually detect the presence of a middle ear infection just by looking into the earlobe.
Can an otoscope damage your ear?
The common cause of Otoscope damage is when the otoscope gets stuck in the auditory canal and cannot come out. When this happens there is a lot of pressure that is placed on the ear drum and the eardrum. This can actually lead to the tearing of the eardrum or even complete loss of the hearing. The best thing to do when using an otoscope is to make sure you hold it tightly with both hands and that the horoscope itself does not move in any way. If you do experience this problem then please contact your audiologist right away.
Something else that can cause Otoscope damage is if it becomes wet or watery while being used. Many people use their otoscopes while they are sitting and there is no danger of getting the ears wet. But when the otoscope gets wet then it can cause some irritation to the ear drum. Please make sure that you do not have any water sitting in your ears for more than 10 minutes at a time. You can also get otoscope drops that can be used to clean out the ears so they stay free from water.
In many cases of Otoscope damage the patient may find that they have ringing in the ears or that there is some static that comes through when using the otoscope. Usually this happens because the otoscope wire has become too tight on the ears or the ear wax has gotten stuck in the otoscope. This can easily be fixed by just gently rubbing the ears. I am sure you do not want to have to go to the doctor to get some otoscope drops, right? Just follow these simple tips and you should not have to worry about Otoscope damage. Good luck!
