Essentially, Microsuction is a method of removing ear wax using a medical suction device under microscope. Microsuction is considered to be the safest, most effective and comfortable method of wax removal.
Specialised training is required for this procedure. Generally, the process allows an expanded view of the patient’s ear canal using illumination and a pair of operating microscopes called ‘loupes’. Gentle suction is then applied to the wax for the purpose of removal.
An advanced clinical hearing assessment requires several procedures which can include: completion of patient history, videoscopic ear examination, Rinne and Weber tuning fork test, speech audiometric, speech in noise tests, audiometric testing, and tympanometry to test the middle ear function.
Upon completion of the assessment, the outcomes are explained to you in clear and easy to understand terms. Depending on the findings, you will be advised as to the best course of action. This can include being told that there is no hearing loss present, that no intervention is required, a referral to your GP for further evaluation, a referral to an ENT consultant, or a recommendation regarding hearing instruments.
Should hearing aids be recommended, then the various technologies and their functions along with the styles of the hearing aids are discussed.
The fitting of your new hearing aids is an important step in the process as it is necessary to ensure the hearing aids meet your needs and expectations.
