Mobile Earwax Removal Success At Hear4u

At Hear4u we provide home visits for people who are unable to attend our local branches

Our fully qualified audiologist attended a local care home to carry out professional earwax removal. 
Mr White was finding daily tasks very difficult with muffled hearing, plus constantly having the TV at loud volumes. He was worried he would not be able to have his ears checked and cleared due to being bed bound unless there was a professional company that carries out home visits in the area - this is where we can help!

After looking in his ear it was established that Mr White's ear was fully blocked. Communication was proving difficult at his appointment as he was struggling so much to hear. The procedure was explained at high volume so every part of the procedure was understood and Mr White's mind was at ease.
Endoscopic microsuction was carried out. Endoscopic ear wax removal is a new way to remove ear wax from the ear canal. It involves a suction machine but a specialist endoscope is used to view the ear canal while the suction is being undertaken. It makes the job a little easier and probably a little safer as well. The professional has a direct view of what they are doing at all times. This option is suitable for everyone, including clients with a perforated ear drum. 

The procedure was a complete success! Within minutes the earwax was fully removed hassle free and pain free.

Mr White was absolutely delighted! 
In past procedures water irrigation was carried out- This is when water is gently pumped into the ear canal at a controlled and steady rate through a specially designed nozzle. The water simply washes the ear wax away. Not everyone is suitable for earwax removal by irrigation though, for example those with a perforated ear drum.

 

'Microsuction has to be the best procedure I have had. With no water involved, there is no need to have the bed sheets or pillows changed after'- Mr White.

With the TV on a standard volume and all noises and conversations being heard without people repeating themselves, Mr White described the after feeling as 'a breath of fresh air'.
