About otoscopes

An otoscope is an essential diagnostic tool in the field of ENT medicine. It is used to examine the ears. Healthcare providers use these devices to investigate ear symptoms of patients and to arrive at a diagnosis. 

These devices are also used to screen patients for any potential ear problems during regular check-ups. An otoscope gives a clear, illuminated view of the ear canal and the eardrum or tympanic membrane.

How does an otoscope work?

Otoscopes are small medical devices that release a beam of light, which illuminates the inner parts of the ear. It helps physicians visualize and examine parts of the ear canal and eardrum. 

Examination of the ear using an otoscope helps physicians diagnose possible ailments that patients may be complaining about, such as pain in the ears, discharge of pus from ears, a sensation of heaviness or fullness in the ear and hearing loss.

A history of the otoscope

Modern otoscopes were first developed in Germany in the 19th century when German otologist,  Wilhelm Kramer, invented a steel ear speculum with a funnel at its end. This ear speculum later came to be known as Kramer's speculum. This was the primary diagnostic tool used by physicians during the 19th century.  

The first otoscope was presented by an English military surgeon, Bruton, in 1862. This was the first device that incorporated interchangeable ear specula, along with other features, such as a magnifying lens and illumination with the help of a perforated mirror, into one handy instrument making the diagnosis of ear conditions easier for physicians.

Key features of otoscopes

Otoscopes are composed of 3 general parts called the head, handle, and cone. 

The primary function of the handle is to allow a firm grip on the device. It also contains a power source for the light released by the device. The head has a light bulb and a low-power magnifying lens whilst the cone refers to the extended part of the head of the otoscopes that is presented into the ear canal.
