AHS Ear Curettes Instructions for Use
1. Position the patient comfortably on the examination table or a stable chair. Patients should remain still during the extraction procedure.
2. Prior to use, use of an otoscope is recommed to identify: 1) location of cerumen in the canal and 2) tympanic membrane.
