The Course in Ear Wax Removal (Microsuction) is designed to provide management strategies, recognise complications and risks associated with microsuction, and identify referral pathways for specialist care in relation to a range of conditions associated with microsuction, based on detailed pre-requisite knowledge of the anatomy, physiology, and pathophysiology of the auditory system.

It will provide participants with a range of knowledge, and skills to perform ear wax removal by microsuctioning of the ear canal for the purpose of wax and foreign body removal.

The face-to-face workshop involves anatomy of the ear and hearing function, recognising landmarks and common conditions. Understanding the rationale for microsuction and how to perform it safely.

Students work with peers in the classroom to conduct simulated examinations as part of the practical skills activities.

If you have Astigmatism in your eyes, participation in this course and performing microsuction may not be suitable for you. The course utilises Converged Binocular Optics, an essential tool for depth perception. Astigmatism (in one eye) spoils your eye's natural binocular vision.
