General Questions

  • Otovent is a medical product designed to gently equalise negative pressure in the middle ear.

  • Otovent can be used by children aged 3 and over.

  • For the first week of treatment, Otovent should be used at least three times a day (morning, midday and evening) blowing up the balloon once per nostril each time. In the second week of treatment, Otovent should be used at least twice a day (morning and evening). Then repeat this process in the same way. It may take a few months to achieve the maximum effect.

  • If the difference in pressure is not equalised by opening the Eustachian tube, fluid can build up behind the eardrum. This is glue ear.

  • Otovent is a safe method. In rare cases, there may be transient side effects such as earache, headache, dizziness or nosebleeds.

  • Otovent should not be used if your child has a cold, an ear infection or an upper respiratory tract infection.

  • You must only use the balloons included in the Otovent range. These have been designed and adapted to open the Eustachian tube safely.

  • Do not clean the balloon. It can be inflated up to 20 times and then it should be replaced.

  • When not in use, the nose piece and balloons should be kept away from light and stored in the original packaging or in the carry case.

  • If necessary, use a mild detergent and ordinary tap water.
