end of the week so enjoy the video and I shall see you at the end hi everybody
this is Rhys Barber from audiology associates thank you very much for
watching our ear wax removal video today this is not a compilation
this is just one patient in today so it was quite a longer removal so you can
see quite a large lump of ear wax here it’s been softened a little bit with
some olive oil so we’re just using the standard sized Zollner tube to clear
this out so it’s getting a grip on the first piece of ear wax there so you can see
that is quite soft it’s just starting to get sucked inside the machine if you’re
not subscribed to our YouTube channel already guys pop yourself along to
audiologyAssociatesUK and hit the subscribe button don’t forget to ring
the bell so you get a notification every time we put a new video on you can see
that we’re getting a grip on this ear wax now so it’s starting to move now we have
to maneuver this around two bends in the ear canal so we’re just wiggling the ear wax
up and down so it helps to move it out of the ear canal a little bit more easily a
little bits broken off this we’re just going to clear the suction tube and get
another grip on this ear wax there you go so a nice large chunk of ear wax come
away you can see there’s a little bit more deeper in the ear canal just clearing
the ear canal wall there a little bit before we look for a nice grip on this deeper
section of ear wax you can see this is a little bit harder
and it’s got a slight angle to it which always makes it a little bit more
difficult to get a grip on with the micro suction but managed to manoeuvre it
to the outer part of the ear canal if you haven’t looked to their Facebook
page yet guys check us out on audiology associates1 on Facebook there is new
content that you won’t see on YouTube on there as well every week so go along and
pop a like on the page and you’ll get a notification about any new content
we put on just struggling to get this so it’s quite large this piece of ear wax and
it doesn’t want to come out of the ear canal very well there we are out it comes
see it’s much dark much very dark in color sorry so it is quite old the ear
drum looks nice and healthy so this is the same patient now with the second
ear so you can see this ear wax also looks quite wet so I think there’s been a bit
of olive oil used or certainly some form of ear wax softener so still sticking with
the standard size zoellner tube here and as before just getting a little bit of a
grip looking for any looser pieces of ear wax so we can take those away first of
all before we work on the much harder central chunk of ear wax there just attempting to guide this out of the
ear canal you can see a few hairs embedded in this ear wax as well which is
going to make it bind together a little bit more so sometimes a little bit more
difficult to remove just taking some of the looser debris away before we
work on the side piece here just pulling that into the center of the ear canal what
that does it unsticks the ear wax from the ear canal wall and that can help us
sometimes to maneuver this out a little bit more easily or to keep it in larger
pieces you can see it’s really not wanting to budge very well here at the
moment I’m just getting a grip from looking for
any looser sections of ear wax which will give us a bit of a a purchase on it to
it to allow us to get it out there we are just got a piece that’s
starting to break away there if you imagine the ear wax can sometimes
be perfectly formed to the ear canal walls so that if we can break the little
pieces away it just allows this your ear wax to move a little bit more in the
ear canal which can then allow us to maneuver it out a lot more effectively
so just very gently breaking edges off you know whilst trying to roll the ear wax
as we are here so trying to get a grip on the top of the ear wax and roll it
forwards and that’s just broken a chunk away now it actually looks like it’s brought
some of the ear wax to the outer part of the ear canal here we go it’s another
section it’s always nice when you get the ear wax from behind getting brought
forward with a piece you’ve just taken away because it means you’re gonna keep
going in and over the year too much this has got quite a chunky chunky piece of
ear wax either doesn’t want to fit out of the ear canal very well so just trying
to wiggle it up and down trying to get some maneuverability to be able to get
it out I’m starting to move a little bit more now there we go go around the
corner here we go see all the hairs embedded in that a little tiny bit left in there on the
ear canal walls so we’re just gonna do a little bit of tidying up in here the
amount the amount of the eardrum we can see there wouldn’t cause any problems as
far as hearings concerned so it’s just a case of tidying just some of these
looser bits of ear wax away now it’s very gently staying above the ear canal wall
so that we don’t touch it or cause any discomfort for the patient and then just
gently working our way along here we go and that’s welcome away so there’s the
eardrum looks nice and healthy so this is what we remove guys you can see is a
fair amount this what five just over five centimeters worth of ear wax between
both ears works out roughly about two inches there abouts you very much

  1. That was crazy! I've never seen chunks like that! Is that amount of earwax considered normal?

  2. The way that last bit all surrenders to the suction at once is amazing.

  3. When is earwax the movie comming out?

  4. Mr Barber, as always loved the video, although Iโ€™m having Jobson Horn withdrawal!! Have a Happy New Year!๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜Š

  5. why don't you get rid of all the earwax?

  6. My mum walked in the room and she saw me looking at this vid…

    I did get slapped

  7. That much feud is improper hygiene. I donโ€™t care what you say. I can imagine how smelly it is. And how much bacteria is in there. You should be using a spoon to scoop out all that nastiness. People. Use swabs! WHY leave that in there! Yuck!

  8. Thatโ€™s just gross.

  9. That wax looked like topsoil I bet he's glad that's out thanks dr barber.๐Ÿ˜„

  10. The "tidying up" part is my favorite. I get why you don't do it as much in the deeper part of the canal, but I wish you did it more for the outer part if it doesn't cause the patient discomfort.

  11. Do you do a complete clean out of the ear canal

  12. He can hear the grass grow now

  13. I have an appointment to have this done next week. Part of me is looking forward to getting it done, and part of me is scared !
    I have been using aids for many years but have never been told to get my ears 'cleaned out' so I don't know what to expect.
    I would like to know how the patients feel afterwards – do they all report improved hearing ?
    Thank you

  14. If the ear wax has been in the ear for a long fuse it small??????

  15. I enjoy all of these videos all the time.

    My question isn't about extractions but you would likely know the answer. What is happening inside our ears when they "pop" ? Just curious. Thank you for your time.

  16. Are you using ear candle first before cleaning the ear or is that just how the ears are?

  17. Silence is golden.
    And the job is incomplete. All that gunk should be removed and scrubbed clean. New wax is better. Its not healthy leaving any stuff behind with dirty skin underneath.

  18. Shoot. I ended up in this part of YouTube again.

  19. hi Rhys, I just came across a guy who has all of your videos on his page. His name is Trena Heslop. I thought you might want to know.

  20. Who are the people who downvote this, I wonder?

  21. What would happen if you put a little hydrogen peroxide in? Just curious

  22. When your removing the wax from the ear, why donโ€™t you completely clean the ear? Or do you and itโ€™s just not shown on these videos? Iโ€™m thinking youโ€™d want to clean it to prevent the patient from doing so and end up smashing the remnants back against the ear drum?

  23. Hi Rhys does everyone have lots of ear wax like these clients do? Is this something we should all have done periodically? I love your videos! Your commentary explaining what you are doing and what kind of wax they have is very educational. The only complaint I have is… PLEASE clean up all of the remaining wax and skin on the outer ear area! Totally grosses me out. lol

  24. Why is it that people let their ears get so bad? Wouldnโ€™t it be so ITCHY?

  25. Does the patient feel anything or are they asleep like when people are during surgery? The patients must feel something.

  26. Hi Rhys have just found your channel. Thanks for all the uploads ๐Ÿ‘ How would I know if I had a build up of wax in my ears? I clean them regularly and donโ€™t seem to get an excessive amount of wax out, but my adult children have said I seem to be getting a bit deaf. Iโ€™m 52 so could it just be an age thing? Thank you in advance for a reply!

  27. Love the videos!!
    I have a question while Iโ€™m here. I had an ear infection on and off for about 5 months in 2018. (Was the worst thing ever.) it was in both ears, Iโ€™m better now after a lot of antibiotics. But I still feel like both ears are really blocked. Iโ€™ve never gotten my ears checked out in terms of wax removal. Is it a good idea to go get my ears checked for wax removal

  28. This was earwax or an insect , huh!!!

  29. I loveee these videos

  30. How does hair that is not rooted get caught in the wax?

  31. Always do great jobs!

  32. These videos are my guilty pleasure… why are they so fascinating?! Rhys you are awesome!

  33. Why do some people get wax like this

  34. Does it hurt when you suction the skin by accident ?

  35. Can you cut hairs that are in the ears?

  36. These people are disgusting that they can let themselves get into such a state. Bad personal hygiene.

  37. You donโ€™t even try to finish cleaning each ear. Very frustrating

  38. Looks like a cockroach โค๏ธ

  39. ๐Ÿ”‡โ›”= ๐Ÿ’†โ€โ™‚๏ธ relax

  40. 6:26 that is the most satisfying thing i have ever seen

  41. that last suck up was so satisfying

  42. For anyone who has been through this – does it hurt?

  43. Why do some people have more wax than others?

  44. Rhys, what does the ear canal look like of someone who is deaf? Is there ever a need to clear the ears if one is deaf?

  45. Thanks for sharing, great job as always.๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘

  46. Not a fan of hairy ears!

  47. You edit & commentate amazing vidio! Thank you.
