3.5CM/1.38 INCHES OF DARK EAR WAX REMOVED – EP 137


hi everybody my name is Rhys Barber I’m
the audiologist here at audiology associates we upload new ear wax removal
videos every Monday Wednesday and Friday at 9 p.m. UK time so please consider
subscribing hi everybody this is Rhys barber from
audiology associates thank you very much watching my ear wax removal video today
this patients come through this lady’s got very very tiny ear canals so really
struggles with ear wax buildup happens quite regularly with this lady unfortunately
luckily the ear wax is on the outer part of the ear canal so we can use the standard
size on the tube here just to clear the entrance to the ear canal first very slowly
just work away and you can see as we’re drawing the ear wax out of the entrance to
the ear canal it’s pulling the ear wax on much deeper inside and there we are – to
clear it there you go there’s the ear drum all looking nice and healthy so
this is the same patient but the other ear
equally as blocked on this side I’m just going to use a standard sized zoellner tube
begin to clear this away just working just at the entrance to the ear
canal you can see just how small the ear ear canal is because there the standard size zoelnner tube it’s the end probably that the nozzle at the a spot two mil in
diameter to remove it is there abouts so you can see just how small that ear canal is
it’s barely accommodating there’s zoellner tube
but we’ve mostly clear they’re just getting through the little cilla and
there’s the eardrum they’re a little bit darker in color but blue in color so
this is our second patient in the compilation today much harder ear wax
here you can see not completely blocked the entrance to the ear canal so use a
little bit of suction you can see it looks quite wet so there’s been some oil
used here hasn’t actually managed to soften too much of the the ear wax itself
you can see it’s quite a hard plug ear wax does tend to dry out over time so you
will get these bigger harder plugs sometimes now what I’m trying to do with
the Zollner tube here is maintain a little bit of suction on the ear wax whilst
bringing it forward and manoeuvring it out because at the moment if I bring
this ear wax straight towards the camera then the bowl of the ear is here so
it’s got to stop this ear wax from coming out so what I need to do is bring the
ear wax forward while also bringing it towards the left side of the screen so
take it around the corner it’s difficult to get a good grip on it though because
the surface is so hardened up and so flat that sometimes you can’t always get
a really good suction grip so just wiggling it there you go just start to
see it come around the bend now so we can get this out a little bit more
effectively just trying to find any grip we can there we are so quite a long little piece of ear wax
there a little bit left up that the ceiling of the ear canal is we’ll just
take that away okay good look at the eardrum ear drum
looks nice and healthy nice and clear now so this is the same patient but the
second ear can see very similar problem a side large chunk of ear wax sitting about
a third of the way into the ear canal should be easy enough to remove with the
standard sized zoellner tube here though just a quick note if you haven’t
already checked out the premier that went live on Sunday you can still view
that and look at all the comments and everything that happened there we are
just broken a little bit off you can see what’s a bit on the dry side as we got a
grip on this ear wax you can see a little bits breaking away getting sucked into
the suction machine here trying to roll the ear wax forwards so that
we can create a gap at the top which I’ll allow us then to wiggle the ear wax up
and down to it to run over out to the ear canal a little bit better you can see
there’s smoother ear wax that it’s been sitting against the ear canal wall sometimes
that’s easier to get a grip on and then the very uneven surface that we have at
the front ear wax is funny if that if the ear wax is too flat it can be a problem with
the suction if it’s too lumpy too bumpy on the front then obviously don’t get a
good suction grip but everything we try and turn this ear wax at the moment we’re
just breaking another piece off which is getting sucked into the into the suction
tank at the front of the machine here we are – to get out of them around the bend
now too big to fit out of the ear canal so wiggling at breaking pieces away just
maneuvering it out a little bit better here we go oh yeah
and there is ear drum all looking nice and healthy there as well so this is
what got sucked into the suction tank at the front and some water in there as
well you can see the bits of got stuck in there and this is what we removed
from the second patient so you can see quite some quite large pieces there as
well centimeter worth all together you very much for watching video
