  1. 1. Abbreviations for Special Senses● Both Ears: AU● Left Eye: OS (Oculus Sinister)
  2. 2. Pressure Equalizing TubePE Tubes decrease therisk of ear infections byallowing air to passthrough and helpingfluid drain to the throat.
  3. 3. Eye, Ear, Nose, and Throat● Eye-Ear-Nose- Throat : EENT
  4. 4. Bone Conduction● Bone Conduction (BC) is the conduction of sound through the bones of the skull.● Low-pitched sounds vibrate the entire skull; high-pitched sounds vibrate bones in the skull individually. These vibration stimulate the sensory cells involved in perceiving sound.
  5. 5. Otitis Media● Otitis Media (OM) is the second most common childhood disease characterized by any inflammation of the middle ear.● OM is classified into many variants on the basis of etiology, duration, symptomatology, and physical findings.
  6. 6. Emmetropia● Emmetropia (EM) he normal condition of perfect vision.● An object is in sharp focus with the eyes lens in a proper, relaxed state.
  7. 7. Exotropia● Exotropia (XT) refers to eyes that are turned outward● This condition can be both congenital and acquired.
  8. 8. Extraocular Movement● Extraocular Movement (EOM) refers to movement of the eyes by the six ocular muscles● Most common symptom includes double vision.
  9. 9. Visual Acuity● Visual Activity (VA) refers to the clearness or sharpness of vision based on what the quality of proper vision should be.● To measure visual activity, the letter chart is very commonly used.
