Understanding Your Video Otoscopy

What is a video otoscopy?

With around 11 million people struggling with their hearing in the UK, video otoscopies are essential in diagnosing hearing and ear problems. A video otoscopy is when a professional audiologist examines your ear canal and ear drum using state-of-the-art ear examination technology. Using our convenient and pain-free video otoscopy tool, we can look inside your ears with live video to understand your ear problems. What’s more, with live video, you can view your inner ear and more. We will also fully explain what we are seeing and answer any questions throughout the process.

Why are video otoscopies done?

  • Inspection & Evaluation
    We undertake video otoscopies to assess the condition of the external ear canal and ear drum. Using this state-of-the-art audio equipment, we can identify obstructions, infections, inflammation, perforations, lesions, fluid accumulations and much more.
  • Identify
    The purpose of an inspection or evaluation by video otoscopy is to identify the cause of the symptoms the patient is suffering from. A video otoscopy can often identify the cause of hearing loss, ear pain, tinnitus, discharge from the ear and more.
  • Monitoring
    A video otoscopy can be essential in managing diseases found in the ear. If a patient is receiving ongoing treatment, monitoring the success of the treatment is key in detecting any changes in the patient’s condition.
  • Understanding
    A video otoscopy uses a video camera to see the inside of the ear. This process can provide the patient with a clear picture and can help them fully understand their condition and the impact of their treatment.

How is a video otoscopy done?

When you come to Hear Hear Ltd for your video otoscopy, you will receive a professional and non-invasive procedure. During a video otoscopy, we will carefully insert an otoscope into the patient’s ear canal. The camera on the end of the otoscope will then transmit real-time footage of the inside of the ear to the monitor. This allows our audiologists to view the ear canal and drum in detail.

Once any problems, obstructions or conditions are identified, we will then work on a treatment plan with the patient.Please don’t hesitate to book your appointment today for a consultation with our audiologists.

This type of hearing loss usually is not permanent. Sensorineural loss is caused by nerve damage and is permanent. Mixed is a combination of conductive and sensorineural loss.
