Conducting an Ear Exam

For babies under 1 year of age:

1. Lay the child on her back on a bed or on a blanket on the floor.  

2. It may be helpful to have a second adult hold the child’s legs or body to prevent sudden movement during the exam. Gently press the child’s head to one side.

3. Gently pull the outer flap of the ear (called the pinna) DOWNWARD and BACKWARD to straighten the ear canal.  

4. Insert a infant-sized tip and look at the iPhone screen to see inside the canal.   Note: Look for the logo of a baby to identify the infant-sized tip.

5. Aim towards the darkest area as this indicates a deeper area of the canal where the eardrum is found.

For children ages 1 to 3:

1. Distract the child with a toy or game.

2. It may be helpful to have a second adult hold the child’s head in an upright position during the exam to prevent them from moving suddenly.

3. Gently pull the outer flap of the ear DOWNWARD and BACKWARD to straighten the ear canal.

4. Insert the tip and look at the iPhone screen to see inside the canal.

5. Aim towards the darkest area as this indicates a deeper area of the canal where the eardrum is found.

For adults and children over Age 3:

1. Sit your child in a comfortable place and  ask your child to stay as still as possible.

2. It’s helpful for the child to be in an upright position during the exam.

3. Gently pull the outer flap of the affected ear UPWARD and BACKWARD to straighten the ear canal.

4. Insert the tip and look at the iPhone screen to see inside the canal.

5. Aim towards the darkest area as this indicates a deeper area of the canal where the eardrum is found.
