Examen otoscópico del oído

El otoscopio es un instrumento utilizado para explorar el canal auditivo. El espéculo de oído (mira del otoscopio en forma de cono) se inserta lentamente en el canal auditivo mientras se observa a través del otoscopio. El espéculo es inclinado suavemente hacia la nariz de la persona para examinar el canal. El haz de luz se extiende más allá del extremo del espéculo. El otoscopio es inclinado con suavidad en diferentes ángulos para examinar las paredes del canal y el tímpano.
