Professional Microsuction Ear Cleaning
Assess - Clean - Educate
Our team at Clear Ears are all qualified nurses who have been trained in the use of microsuction and curettage techniques to clean your ears gently and safely.
Your treating Nurse will discuss and assess your ear health, clean your ears and provide education on looking after your ears and managing your ear wax.
The procedure is conducted in line with all relevant Australian Standards and with the use of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE).
*The use of a wax softener 2-3 days prior to your appointment is strongly recommended
1. Questions & Inspections
Your treating Nurse will discuss your health, and your ear health with you, and then proceed with assessment using the speculum and loupes.
2. Wax Removal via Microsuction
Your Nurse attaches the suction catheter to the suction unit and begins the earwax or blockage removal process. This can generate noise and does require the patient to keep their head still.
3. Wax Removal via Other Methods
A curette or forceps may be used to gently remove any wax or blockage that is in the ear canal that cannot be removed by microsuction.
