Here at THE NURSE CLINIC, we believe that one approach to Ear Wax Removal does not always create successful results – therefore it is our protocol to always assess each patient individually.
The National Institute of Health and Care Excellence (NICE) www.nice.org.uk suggests that the gold standard for Ear Wax Removal is Microsuction:
However if no contraindications are found during our medical assessment, irrigation is also safe. Occasionally we combine both approaches depending on each scenario.
We have various methods we use for wax removal – Hospivac 400® Micro suction machine, Otoclear® Manual Ear Irrigation and Guardian Projet 101 Irrigation machine. All equipment is considered the best in the field of Ear Wax Removal.
Used in conjunction with the VOROTEK O SCOPE to ensure visual accuracy and depth perception of the ear canal is maintained.
