Title (EN) SILENT EFFUSION REMOVAL
(FR) ELIMINATION D'UN ÉPANCHEMENT SILENCIEUX
Abstract:
(EN) A method is disclosed for clearing effusion from an ear. The method may include applying liquid to an ear canal, which is proximal to a perforated tympanic membrane, which is proximal to a middle ear containing effusion, applying an ear device to seal and pressurize the liquid inside the ear canal, the ear device regulating the amount of pressure inside the ear canal, and inducing a Eustachian tube, which is distal to the middle ear, to open, which causes the fluid to displace the effusion into the Eustachian tube.
(FR) Cette invention concerne une méthode d'élimination d'un épanchement auriculaire. La méthode peut consister à introduire un liquide dans le canal de l'oreille, qui se situe à proximité de la membrane tympanique perforée, laquelle se situe à proximité de l'oreille moyenne contenant l'épanchement ; à appliquer un dispositif auriculaire pour obturer et mettre sous pression le liquide à l'intérieur du canal auriculaire, ledit dispositif auriculaire régulant la quantité de pression à l'intérieur du canal auditif ; et à induire l'ouverture de la trompe d'Eustache, distale de l'oreille moyenne, qui oblige le liquide à déplacer l'épanchement dans la trompe d'Eustache.
