Designed with safety in mind, the Welch Allyn ear wash system includes several built-in features that reduce side effects associated with other ear irrigation devices?Including vertigo, nausea, deeper cerumen impaction, perforated eardrums, and other tympanic membrane damage.
Hydrovac Action proprietary technology features simultaneous irrigation and suction capabilities, which means all discharge is directed away from you and the patient. Easy-to-control monitor suction, water temperature, and pressure levels. Includes over ten feet of clear, heavy-duty plastic tubing that lets you position the patient almost anywhere in the room.
As a registered nurse, i have used this system in the facility I work and it is an excellent product. Pt""s verbalized their ability to hear once the wax comes out. Often times pt's feel a slight pop and then suddenly begin to hear again. The water temperature detector prevents water from irrigating too hot or too cold. The system will not irrigate until the water is properly adjusted. I haven't heard any complaints from pt's and I wish I could afford one for myself. Well worth the money.
