CONGRATULATIONS TO TAMMY, COMMENT #91!!!
My little 3 year old always had ear infections as a little baby. My daughter has had a few too. I hate it when I never “know” if that is the problem. So it was nice when I was sent the Ear Check to review! With the touch of a button, EarCheck® Middle Ear Monitor can accurately and painlessly detect the presence of middle ear fluid, a key sign of an ear infection. It helps you determine when your child might have an ear infection, and it has been used by pediatrician for years. It is fast, accurate, easy to use and SAFE! How great is that? Something every Mama should have in her first aid cabinet. I used this on my daughter, when she would NOT stop crying. I was so very happy to have this device on hand. I simply put it into her little ear and within 5 seconds or less, it told me not likely. So then I could move onto other reasons why she was so fussy, like teething. I am very happy to have this around.
How Ear Check works (taken off their site):
The EarCheck® Middle Ear Monitor uses gentle sound waves to accurately and painlessly detect the presence of middle ear fluid, a key sign of an ear infection. This is the same patented and proven acoustic reflectometry technology used by thousands of physicians since 1997, and is a technique recommended by the American Academies of Pediatrics and Family Physicians.1
Simply place the tip of EarCheck® into the child’s outer ear canal and press the SCAN button; the monitor works by sending a pleasant chirping sound into the ear canal. Some of this sound bounces off the eardrum and travels back to the instrument’s built-in microphone. EarCheck® then analyzes the reflected sound to determine if the eardrum is working normally. If there is fluid in the ear, the eardrum’s vibrations may be restricted. The greater the fluid level, the greater the reflected sound. Within only seconds, you will be able to determine if your child has fluid in the middle ear.
Times to use Ear Check:
*If your child shows signs of an ear infection (tugging on ears, excessive crying, etc..)
*Is being treated for an ear infection (to monitor it)
*Has a cold
*Suffers from frequent ear infections
