Instruments required for syringing.

Instruments required for syringing.

Description : A metal aural syringe of the Wood or Simpson pattern is recommended for general use.

Both conical metal pipes and the Toynbee pipe with a smooth bulbous tip are quite satisfactory.

A relatively inexpensive polypropylene ear syringe is now available which has a smooth action and is leak‑free.

A Bacon pattern aural syringe is lighter in use and has the advantage of being self‑charging (self‑filling).

Many European otologists prefer a rubber Higginson syringe fitted with a soft rubber nozzle.

A suitably shaped receiver or ear trough is required to catch the effluent.
