The EarCheck® Middle Ear Monitor uses gentle sound waves to accurately and painlessly detect the presence of middle ear fluid, a key sign of an ear infection. This is the same patented and proven acoustic reflectometry technology used by thousands of physicians since 1997, and is a technique recommended by the American Academies of Pediatrics and Family Physicians.1
Simply place the tip of EarCheck® into the child's outer ear canal and press the SCAN button; the monitor works by sending a pleasant chirping sound into the ear canal. Some of this sound bounces off the eardrum and travels back to the instrument's built-in microphone. EarCheck® then analyzes the reflected sound to determine if the eardrum is working normally. If there is fluid in the ear, the eardrum's vibrations may be restricted. The greater the fluid level, the greater the reflected sound. Within only seconds, you will be able to determine if your child has fluid in the middle ear.
Use EarCheck® Middle Ear Monitor if your child:
Shows signs of an ear infection
Is being treated for an ear infection
Has a cold
Suffers from frequent ear infections
The signs of a middle ear infection can range from mild to severe, but often include the following: Fluid in the middle ear
Runny/stuffy nose or cough
Pulling or rubbing the ear (indicating ear pain)
Decrease in appetite
It is important to note that fluid may be present in the middle ear without an active infection; this is called otitis media with effusion and is often associated with an oncoming ear infection or recovery from one.
NOTE: EarCheck® indicates the likelihood of fluid during time of testing. It is important to keep in mind that middle ear fluid is not always constant and may appear rapidly and then quickly go away. Your doctor is the best source of information about your child's health. If your child is sick, consult your doctor.
