Ear Anatomy & Otoscopy

Participators will learn everything they need to know about the structures of the ear – particularly the outer ear, external auditory canal, middle ear, and landmarks of the tympanic membrane (eardrum). This includes the potential diseases and disorders of the outer ear and how to distinguish between healthy and unhealthy conditions of the ear canal. Participators will further learn about ear sterilisation and general ear hygiene.

Perhaps a better-suited question for some may even be – what is otoscopy?

Otoscopy is a clinical procedure used to examine structures of the ear, particularly the external auditory canal, tympanic membrane, and middle ear. The provider utilises the otoscope to visualise the anatomy of the ear. Whilst performing the otoscopic examination, the provider holds the handle of the otoscope and inserts the cone of the otoscope into the patient’s external auditory canal. The otoscope contains a light and magnifying lens to illuminate and enlarge ear structures to evaluate the overall health of the ear. 

Once completed, participators will qualify for our Ear Wax Removal and Occupational Health Technician Training courses.
