Clinical Focus Primary Care Article How to set up microsuction

The availability of microsuction in a primary care setting is useful, as it allows common conditions such as otitis externa and earwax to be treated. Microsuction had previously been used exclusively in hospital ENT clinics and operating theatres, since the introduction of the operating microscope in the 1950s. However, with microscopes becoming smaller and more affordable, they are now being used in primary care. The microscope provides good visualisation of the ear and with the addition of a suction pump, it allows the ear canal to be safely removed of discharge and wax.
