Global Otoscope Devices Market: Overview
An Otoscope is a medical instrument that has been designed for examining aural environments and screen any potential ear-related disorders. Doctors and health examiners use the instrument to screen and analyze the symptoms of the ear related disease. The device focusses on the tympanic membrane and inner ear canal and can also be used to examine the nasal cavity and throat if needed. Primarily, the otoscope devices comprise of a head and a handle. The head consists of a light source and simple low powered magnifying lens.
In some models of the otoscope device, the magnifying lens is detachable, enabling the medical examiner to insert the device into the ear canal to remove cerumen (or ear wax). A predominant otoscope device used by otologists and otolaryngologists are binocular microscopes. A binocular (two-eyed) view is required in order to judge depth. If wax or another material obstructs the canal and/or a view of the entire eardrum, it can easily and confidently be removed with specialized suction tips and other microscopic ear instruments, whereas the absence of depth perception with the one-eyed view of a common otoscope makes removal of anything more laborious and hazardous. Another major advantage of the binocular microscope is that both of the examiner's hands are free, since the microscope is suspended from a stand. The rising prevalence of aural, and related ENT diseases is a key factor boosting the growth of the global otoscope devices market.
