What is video otoscopy?

Video otoscopy is a diagnostic test performed by means of an all-in-one device allowing the physician to observe the inside of the patient’s ear, record a live video and play it back in front of the patient.

The device has an otoendoscope, light and a tiny camera with fiber optics that allows to see the inner ear and reproduce the whole image on a screen or monitor in front of the doctor.

Thanks to its modern system, this type of examination can improve the interaction with the patient since, by seeing the images, the patient can understand more clearly the ear’s inner condition.

When is video otoscopy needed?

As a diagnostic and imaging test, it is recommended when the patient presents any ear discomfort. Whether it is pain, pressure sensation, hearing loss or even suspicion of infection, it may be the reason why this examination would be needed.

By means of video otoscopy examination, any type of patient’s condition in the middle ear or ear canal can be discovered.

In many cases, it may be recommended as a preventive measure for infection. Considering that organs, such as the larynx and nose, communicate with the ears, when there is a health problem in any of these areas, it is also recommended to evaluate the ears’ condition.

How to prepare for a video otoscopy?

No previous preparation is required. It is an outpatient examination performed by the otolaryngologist doctor in his office with which he can verify a diagnosis and define the treatment to follow.

Frequently asked questions.

No, it is a smooth and safe examination in which the patient does not feel any kind of discomfort or pain.

The process is on the external part of the ear. The otoendoscope is gently placed over the antitragus of the ear. In some cases, the physician may gently pull the ear to straighten the ear canal and allow for a clearer image.

Afterwards, the physician turns on the light of the instrument and starts recording or transmitting the image to the screen showing the inner ear area.

Diagnosis is immediate. As the physician observes the inside of the ear, he can draw conclusions about what may be affecting the patient's hearing quality. Any inflammation, infection or malformation inside the ear will be immediately noticed by the physician.

Video otoscopy is a safe test that does not pose any risk to the patient. However, in cases of infection, the user of the device must be responsible for thoroughly cleaning the equipment to avoid spreading the infection from one ear to another.

Today, there are various techniques that help to improve these hygiene and safety services, so you can rest assured.
