Dc Revised Ears Nose Throat Mouth Part 2

  1. 1. Ears, Nose, Mouth, Throat
  2. 2. Ears
  3. 3. Anatomy <ul><li>The ear is responsible for hearing and balance </li></ul><ul><li>Consists of 3 regions </li></ul><ul><ul><li>External ear </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Middle ear </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Inner ear </li></ul></ul>
  4. 4. Structure and Function <ul><li>External Ear </li></ul><ul><li>> auricle/pinna </li></ul><ul><li>- movable cartilage covered with skin </li></ul><ul><li>- Mastoid process= important Landmark </li></ul><ul><li>External Auditory Canal </li></ul><ul><li>- S-shaped pathway leading to the ME </li></ul><ul><li>- 2.5 to 3 cm. long in adult </li></ul>
  5. 5. <ul><li>Its skeleton of bone and cartilage is covered with sensitive skin ( outer 1/3 is cartilage, inner 2/3 consists of bone) </li></ul><ul><li>This canal lining is protected and lubricated with cerumen </li></ul>
  6. 7. <ul><li>- Lymphatic drainage of the external ear flows into parotid , mastoid, superficial cervical nodes </li></ul>
  7. 9. MIDDLE EAR <ul><li>> air filled cavity in the temporal bone </li></ul><ul><li>>It contains the ossicles ( malleus, incus,stapes) that transmit sound from the TM to the oval window of the inner ear </li></ul>
  8. 10. MIDDLE EAR <ul><li>>Tympanic membrane (eardrum) separates external and middle ear. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Translucent membrane </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Pearly, gray color </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Cone of light reflection when using otoscope </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Oval and slightly concave shape, pulled in at center by malleus </li></ul></ul>
  9. 11. Middle ear <ul><li>>Openings to </li></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Outer ear covered by tympanic membrane </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Inner ear = oval and round windows </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Eustachian tube connects middle ear to the nasopharnyx for air passage (normally closed, opens with swallowing/yawning) </li></ul></ul></ul>
  10. 14. Middle ear has 3 functions <ul><li>Conducts sound vibration from outer ear to inner ear </li></ul><ul><li>Protects the inner ear by reducing the amplitude of loud sounds </li></ul><ul><li>Eustachian tube allows equalization of air pressure on each side of the ear drum to avoid rupture ( high altitudes) </li></ul>
  11. 15. Inner Ear <ul><li>Contains the Bony Labyrinth which holds the sensory organs for hearing and equilibrium </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Vestibule </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Semicircular canals </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Cochlea (contains the central hearing apparatus) </li></ul></ul>
  12. 17. Function of hearing <ul><li>3 levels </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Peripheral </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>> ear transmits sound and converts its vibrations into electrical impulses </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>> The electrical impulses are conducted by the auditory process of cranial nerve VIII (Acoustic) to the brain stem </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Amplitude=loudness </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Frequency=pitch </li></ul></ul></ul>
  13. 18. <ul><li>Sound waves cause the eardrum to vibrate </li></ul><ul><li>> Vibrations travel via the ossicles thru the oval window > the cochlea > to the round window where they are dissipated </li></ul>
  14. 19. <ul><li>Vibrations in the basilar membrane of the cochlea that contain the organ of Corti receptor hair cells > translate the vibrations to electric impulses </li></ul><ul><li>> The stimulated impulses go to the brainstem via Acoustic nerve (VIII) </li></ul>
  15. 20. <ul><li>2. Brain stem </li></ul><ul><li>permits identification of sound and locating the direction of a sound in space. </li></ul><ul><li>Sensitive to intensity and timing from the ears </li></ul><ul><li>depending on head position </li></ul><ul><li>3. Cerebral cortex </li></ul><ul><li>- Intreprets the meaning of the sound and begins the appropriate response </li></ul>
  16. 21. Pathways of hearing <ul><li>Air conduction (AC)– normal pathway of hearing, the most efficient </li></ul><ul><li>Bone conduction (BC)– bones of the skull vibrate and transmit vibrations to the inner ear and acoustic nerve </li></ul>
  17. 24. Physical Examination <ul><li>The Auricle </li></ul><ul><li>1) inspect each auricle for size , shape, symmetry, color, position on the head, deformities, nodules and lesions </li></ul><ul><li>2) If ear pain, discharge or inflammation is </li></ul><ul><li>present, move the auricle up and down </li></ul>
  18. 25. <ul><li>3 ) Note tenderness of pinna and mastoid area. Press the tragus and press firmly behind the ear </li></ul>
  19. 26. Physical Examination <ul><li>Auricle </li></ul><ul><li>-Extends slightly outward from the skull </li></ul><ul><li>Positioned in a nearly vertical plane </li></ul><ul><li>The origin of the helix should be on a horizontal line with corner of the eye </li></ul><ul><li>It should have the same color as the facial skin w/o moles, cysts & other lesions </li></ul>
  20. 27. Otoscopic Exam <ul><li>1) Tip the patient’s head to the opposite side </li></ul><ul><li>2)Grasp the auricle firmly but gently, while pulling it upward, backward and slightly outward </li></ul><ul><li>3)Insert into the canal, sl down and forward, the largest ear speculum that the canal will accommodate </li></ul>
  21. 31. <ul><li>4) Observe the ff: </li></ul><ul><li>- patency of the ear canal </li></ul><ul><li>- describe the walls of the ear canal. Note </li></ul><ul><li>any redness or swelling </li></ul><ul><li>- identify any discharge, presence of cerumen or FB in the ear canal </li></ul><ul><li>- tympanic membrane </li></ul>
  22. 32. Inspect using Otoscope <ul><li>External canal </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Color </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Swelling </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Lesions </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Discharge ; color and odor. Clean or change speculum before examining other ear. </li></ul></ul>
  23. 33. Tympanic membrane <ul><li>Color – normal is shiny, translucent, pearl-grey </li></ul><ul><li>Landmarks ( umbo, handle of malleus, light reflex) </li></ul><ul><li>Position – flat, slightly pulled in at the center and flutters when person holds nose and swallows </li></ul><ul><li>Integrity of membrane – intact </li></ul>
  24. 35. <ul><li>Perform the otoscope exam prior to hearing tests. </li></ul>
  25. 36. Hearing Evaluation <ul><li>Rough quantitative test for hearing loss </li></ul><ul><li>Whisper test </li></ul><ul><li>Tuning fork </li></ul>
  26. 37. <ul><li>Rough quantitative test for hearing loss </li></ul><ul><li>- begins when the patient responds to your questions and directions. The patient responds without excessive requests for repetition </li></ul><ul><li>- Speech with a monotonous tone and erratic volume may indicate hearing loss </li></ul>
  27. 38. WHISPER TEST <ul><li>Begins with the history-Conversational tone </li></ul><ul><li>The following tests may indicate the presence of hearing loss but not the degree. </li></ul>
  28. 39. <ul><li>Place your mouth at the side of the patient’s head ( 2 ft.) from her ear with the far ear covered </li></ul><ul><li>Whisper test questions that can’t be answered by yes or no </li></ul><ul><li>Test consistently with loud, medium and soft tones </li></ul>
  29. 40. <ul><li>Repeat on the opposite ear using another word, have the client identify the words (Used to detect high-tone loss) </li></ul><ul><li>Normal Response to Voice test </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Correct identification of whispered words bilaterally </li></ul></ul>
  30. 41. TUNING FORK TESTS <ul><li>Measure hearing by air conduction and bone conduction </li></ul><ul><li>Frequency of fork is 256-1024 cycles/sec. </li></ul><ul><li>To activate the tuning fork, hold it by the stem and strike the tines softly on the back of the hand </li></ul>
  31. 42. TUNING FORK TEST <ul><li>Weber test </li></ul><ul><li>> used when hearing is reported as better in one ear than the other ( bone conduction) </li></ul><ul><li>> with normal neurosensory hearing and no conductive loss, the sounds are equal in both ears </li></ul>
  32. 43. <ul><li>> lateralization of the sound to one ear indicates a conductive loss on the same </li></ul><ul><li>side or a perceptive loss/sensorineural loss on the other side </li></ul>
  33. 44. <ul><li>Weber Test </li></ul>
  34. 45. <ul><li>Rinne test – compares bone conduction and air conduction </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Normally sound is heard 2X as long by air conduction as by bone conduction </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Normal response ; positive Rinne Test = AC>BC Bilaterally </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Sound is heard longer by BC with a conductive loss. </li></ul></ul>
