DQ1 As an instructor, you are working with a nursing student in the second year of a 4-year nursing program. The student does not perform an ear exam correctly. How would you explain the appropriate technique to examine the ears?

DQ2 You are working the triage desk of the ED. A client presents with sudden loss of vision of the right eye after a head collision during a volleyball game. What would your assessment include? What could be initial problems and would they warrant emergent intervention?

An ear exam is a thorough check of the ears. It is done to screen for ear problems, such as hearing loss, ear pain, discharge, lumps, or objects in the ear. An ear exam can find problems in the ear canal, eardrum, and middle ear. These problems may include infection, too much earwax, or an object like a bean or a bead.

During an ear exam, a tool called an otoscope is used to look at the outer ear canal and eardrum. An otoscope is a handheld tool with a light and a magnifying lens. It also has a funnel-shaped viewing piece with a narrow, pointed end called a speculum. A pneumatic otoscope has a rubber bulb that your doctor can squeeze to give a puff of air into the ear canal. The air helps the doctor to see how the eardrum moves.
