It works by using pressure to open the Eustration tube and allowing the fluid to drain from the inner ear. Otovent is a small balloon which the child blows up using their nose. Otovent equalises the pressure and relieves the symptoms in the middle ear. The act of blowing up the balloon helps to open up the Eustachian tube, making it easier for fluid to drain from the middle ear. Your child will need to use Otovent on a regular basis, three times a day, until all the fluid has been drained away. You will often start to see results as early as a few days into using the Otovent.
Otovent is best used three times a day (morning, midday or after school, and evening) or at least twice a day (morning and evening) if that is not possible. The normal duration of treatment is 2-3 weeks, after which your doctor should decide whether or not you continue with the treatment.
The Otovent pack is intended for 2-3 weeks treatment. Each balloon may be used for 3-4 days.
Glue Ear is a very common condition that affects nearly 200,000 children in the UK annually. It is caused when the Eustation tube, which connects the inner ear to the back of the throat, does not function properly. A vacuum forms in the inner ear that causes fluid to build up behind the ear drum. If this fluid is unable to drain away, it becomes sticky and glue like, causing hearing loss.
