Exam Tips

  • Make sure the speculum is clean of any fibers that may interfere with the video
  • Make sure you’ve secured the ear speculum tightly all the way down on the otoscope so no gap is left between the speculum and the otoscope light indicator ring
  • In some cases, you may be able to simply insert the otoscope with the speculum straight in without pulling and maneuvering the ear
