The Life/form® Ear Examination Simulator enables students to practice examination of the human ear. Specially molded to exactly simulate external and internal physical appearance and dimensions. The interchangeable ears are easy to change. Life-size full-color prints on film, located at the tympanic membrane, provide a realistic view that would be experienced when examining a live patient.
The lifelike, flexible texture of the ears requires the same manipulation when using the otoscope as would be used on a live patient. Realistic cleaning and irrigation exercises are possible with two tubes of synthetic earwax that are provided with the simulator. A supplementary set of four ears is available separately for advanced nursing and medical school training (LF01020U).
Includes normal tympanic membrane (photo embedded); mucoid otitis media (photo embedded); serous otitis media with fluid level (photo embedded); chronic otitis media with perforation (photo embedded); normal tympanic membrane with slanted ear canal (photo embedded); normal ear without photo for earwax removal exercise; two tubes of synthetic earwax; a set of nine 35 mm slides; instructions; and hard carrying case. Five-year warranty.
