The Otovent® method is a clinically proven first-line treatment option to help avoid the surgical insertion of a tube into the eardrum. It is a non surgical, drug free treatment for glue ear, and has been recommended by ENT specialists for the last 20 years.
The child inflates a small balloon using their nose, and at the same time equalizes the pressure and relieves the symptoms in the middle ear. Blowing up the balloon helps to open up the Eustachian tube, making it easier for fluid to drain from the middle ear.
Children can use Otovent® at home under parental supervision. It is painless, harmless and takes only a matter of seconds to perform. Otovent® should be used 2-3 times daily until all the fluid has been drained away.
