The safest procedure to remove ear wax
Wax removal via micro suction is considered safer than other methods such as syringing. The wax removal will be carried out by a trained clinician working to the protocols set out within the Ear Wax Removal Clinic’s™ Aural Micro Suction Procedures Manual. Complications of ear wax removal with micro suction are uncommon; however possible complications, side-effects and material risks inherent in the procedure include but are not limited to: incomplete removal of ear wax requiring a return visit (for severely impacted wax).
To ensure the risk of complication is minimised, it is essential that accurate past medical history is supplied to our clinicians. In addition, it is important that the patient remains relatively still during the procedure.
We use CE marked suction unit that is used to remove fluids from the airway or respiratory support system and infectious materials from wounds and has been adapted for aural micro suction.
