Otovent Glue Ear Treatment is a device designed to alleviate the unpleasant symptoms of blocked Eustachian tubes by the use of gentle reverse air pressure. It consists of a special balloon and nosepiece which is inflated by blowing through the nose.
Otovent opens the Eustachian tube and allows the fluid that has collected in the middle ear to drain naturally down the back of the throat. The Otovent procedure can be performed at home under the supervision of parents. The treatment takes only a matter of seconds to perform, and is painless
Otovent can prevent or treat Otitis media and can be an attractive alternative to surgery. The new Otovent method is designed to treat many of the complications associated with negative ear pressure caused by Eustachian tube dysfunction.

Its simple. With one nostril pinched shut, and the balloon mounted nares plug held against the other nostrum, the patient inflates the balloon. Once fully extended, the patient then allows the positive pressure of the balloon to reenter the nose, and swallows, achieving trans-Eustachian tube middle ear insufflation.
