2CM PIECE OF EAR WAX REMOVED CLEANLY – EP 96


hi everybody this is Rhys barber from
audiology associates thank you very much watching our video today we have an
ear wax extraction video for you so this patient has been coming in with reduced
hearing you can see that we got some quite deep-seated
ear wax there it’s probably a sheen to it because the patient has been using a bit
of olive oil just to try and soften this a little bit for us so we’re using the
standard size zoellner tube the first thing we’re going to do is try and
detach this ear wax from the edges of the ear canal because it means it’s we’re more
likely to get the center mass of ear wax there moving down the ear canal in one large
piece I’ve just broken the first piece away
there you can see the ear wax is wedged quite
firmly in this ear canal maybe I starting to see it break down a
little bit we can see the eardrum now that bluish gray piece of skin at the
back of the ear wax there that’s the eardrum you don’t see just all coming away now it’s the eardrum there
okay similar on this side we got this looks like a much larger piece just put
a little bit of olive oil in there because it looks quite dry so it helps
me to get a better suction grip on the ear wax itself really just wiggling this ear wax up and
down back and forth to work it around the bends in the ear canal just starting
to work its way out now here we go and that came out in one
piece you can see other of these shown eardrum there so the section to the left
hand side that’s what we took out the first ear the second section on the right hand side is what we took out the second this the standard size zoellner tube there
yep some quite big chunks of ear wax in there no wonder that patient wasn’t
hearing very well he were much better afterwards um as always guys if you did
like the video and you don’t mind liking sharing that would be great if you’re
not already subscribed then pop a subscription on we’ve produced new
videos every Tuesday and Friday and as always guys take care
