How To Use

Who can use Otovent?

Adults and children aged 3 years and up. The treatment of children should always be supervised by an adult.

How often and for how long should I use Otovent?

Initially, Otovent should be used at least three times a day (morning, noon, and evening). After one week, it should be used at least twice a day (morning and evening). The normal duration of treatment is 2 – 3 weeks, after which a physician should decide whether or not to continue with the treatment. Each medical balloon may be inflated a maximum of 20 times.

When should Otovent not be used?

Otovent should not be used if you are suffering from acute otitis media or upper respiratory tract infection.

How do I use Otovent?

  • Inflation Phase Connect the balloon to the nose piece
  • Hold the round part of the nose piece firmly against your right nostril with your right hand
  • Press your left nostril closed, using the fingers of your left hand Inhale deeply and close your mouth, inflate the balloon until it is the size of a grapefruit, by blowing through your right nostril
  • Repeat the procedure with your left nostril
  • Some patients may experience discomfort in the ear or dizziness during inflation. This initial sensation will decrease during the next inflation and is an indication that the procedure is working correctly. If you do not feel anything in your ear, then when the balloon is inflated, still with your mouth closed, and with the nose-piece firmly against your nostril: Perform a sequence of swallowing manoeuvres (do not swallow the air from the balloon)
  • Repeat the above steps with your left nostril
