First-line treament for negative pressure in the middle ear.

The Otovent® method is a clinically proven first-line treatment option to help avoid the surgical insertion of a tube into the eardrum. It is a nonsurgical, drug-free treatment for Glue Ear and Eustachian Tube Dysfunction, and has been recommended by ENT specialists for over 20 years for ages 3 years & older.

Children can use Otovent® under parental supervision. It is painless, harmless and takes only a matter of seconds to perform. Otovent® should be used 2-3 times daily until all the fluid has been drained away.

How to use Otovent®?


  1. Connect the balloon to the nose piece. Hold the round part of the nose piece firmly against the right nostril with the right hand. Press the left nostril closed with the left hand.
  2. Inhale deeply, close the mouth and inflate the balloon until it is the size of a grapefruit, by blowing through the nostril.

So glad we discovered Otovent, such a simple idea has (hopefully) prevented surgery. If only more people knew about it!
