The Otovent autoinflation device is the only clinically effective, drug-free and non-surgical treatment for glue ear or Otitis Media with Effusion. It also equalises pressure in the middle ear for use during a flight or as a visual aid to equalising, an essential Scuba Diving technique.

Benefits of using Otovent:

  • Reduces the symptoms of glue ear by opening the eustachian tubes allowing the fluid associated with glue ear to safely drain from the middle ear.
  • Improves patient’s quality of life.
  • Reduces the need for grommet surgery.
  • Helps prevent hearing and learning impairment caused by glue ear.
  • Natural, non-surgical treatment which helps to treat the symptoms of glue ear and Eustachian tube dysfunction.


  • 1 x Nose Piece.
  • 5 x Otovent Balloons

Adults and children aged 3 years and up. The treatment of children should always be supervised by an adult.

Initially, Otovent should be used at least three times a day (morning, noon, evening). After one week, it should be used at least twice a day (morning and evening). The normal duration of treatment is 2 – 3 weeks, after which a physician should decide whether or not to continue with the treatment.

Each medical balloon may be inflated a maximum of 20 times.

Connect the balloon to the nose piece

Hold the round part of the nose piece firmly against your right nostril with your right hand. Press your left nostril closed, using the fingers of your left hand

Inhale deeply and close your mouth, inflate the balloon until it is the size of a grapefruit, by blowing through your right nostril

Repeat the procedure with your left nostril

Some patients may experience discomfort in the ear or dizziness during inflation. This initial sensation will decrease during the next inflation and is an indication that the procedure is working correctly.

If you do not feel anything in your ear, then when the balloon is inflated, still with your mouth closed, and with the nose-piece firmly against your nostril:

Perform a sequence of swallowing maneuvers (do not swallow the air from the balloon)

Repeat the above steps with your left nostril


The balloons contain latex, if you are allergic to latex or latex products consult your physician before using this product. If you experience any allergic symptoms, stop treatment and consult your physician.

Keep out of reach of children. The treatment of children should always be supervised by an adult. Never use toy balloons in performing the Otovent method as toy balloons do not give the proper inflation pressure and may cause treatment failure.

Some people may suffer from frequent episodes of anterior nosebleeds. The condition is a nuisance but harmless, any manipulation of the nose may provoke an episode (nose-picking, nose-blowing or balloon inflation). Usually the condition can easily be cured after a visit to the ENT doctor.
