We recommend completing The Ear: Anatomy and Physiology first. This course is designed to provide fundamental knowledge and understanding of the ear before starting our advanced online ear health courses.
The Ear: Anatomy and Physiology
This module works through the anatomy and physiology of the human ear, with real-life examples of what can be seen when performing otoscopy.
Tympanic Membrane Assessment
The tympanic membrane is a fascinating organ and is quite impressive given its diminutive size. This module aims to enhance the knowledge and skills of tympanic membrane assessment during otoscopy.
The Otitis Externa module examines the external ear canal and infections that can occur within this small space, with real-life examples of what can be seen when performing otoscopy. This module explores otitis externa in detail including clinical presentation, causes and treatment.
This module examines a common, yet sometimes confusing childhood condition. Otitis media presents in different ways and this module will provide you with assessment skills to distinguish between the various types.
Exostosis and Osteomas
Why do these bony growths occur in the ear? Are they dangerous? How are they treated and do they even need to be treated? In this course, we will explore all these questions and more. We will examine real otoscopy photographs and consider the differences in these bony abnormalities.
Tinnitus is a condition that many people experience at some point in their lives. Yet sadly, tinnitus is often overlooked due to its complexity. This module aims to help you understand tinnitus so that you can reassure your patients and be a resource for them in their journey towards managing it.
Webinar: Wax and Keratin
Ear wax (cerumen) is necessary to keep our ears healthy and comfortable. The production of ear wax and keratin within the external auditory canal differs between individuals and for some, can be excessive and troublesome.
Webinar: Patulous Eustachian Tube
A Patulous Eustachian tube is a very rare condition in which the Eustachian tube stays open, rather than closed. It occurs in about 1% of the population and is indeed a very interesting topic.
Webinar: Aural Polyps
Aural polyps can be an incidental finding when assessing the external auditory canal. Let's take a look at what aural polyps are, why they form, how they can differ from other pathology in the external auditory canal and what to do should you suspect one.
