Sometimes the easiest way to get rid of ear wax is with the use of specialist instruments.
Using high-powered magnification (Loupes) or the video scope, it is often possible to remove wax and other obstructions without the need for suction, or water.
Instumentation may be used in conjunction with either Microsuction or Irrigation.
There is no extra charge for this as you nurse may use a combination of methods dependant on the circumstaces.
Whatever your nurse recommends will be thouroughly explained and only carried out with your consent. If at any time you feel unsure or uncomfortable please don't hesitate to tell your Nurse Specialist. The procedure may be stopped at any time on your say so.
