2021 Best Digital Otoscopes Review
The promise of a digital otoscope is more reliable access to the tympanic membrane, improved patient comfort, medical documentation and sharing of the image with the patient, learners, parents, and colleagues.
There are many choices available for digital otoscopes. In this article, we compare five popular digital otoscopes.
We focus on a selection of devices that could be considered for use in the clinical environment. Each device has strengths and weaknesses. Which digital otoscope best serves your needs will depend on how you plan to use the device. All digital Reviews on otoscopes have a camera, illumination, and some method for displaying an image. How they implement those components is quite different.
From the author of this document, Dr. James Berbee: I am a practicing emergency physician, an inventor of the Wispr otoscope and the founder of the WiscMed company. This position prevents me from being the impartial reviewer that one would ideally prefer. However, I have attempted to be fair in my review, including pointing out the areas where the Wispr is not as strong as the other devices. If you believe I have made material mistakes in this document, please contact me. My contact information is at the end.
Among digital otoscopes, a fundamental tradeoff must be made regarding the size of the camera and the resolution of the image. The smaller the camera, the lower the resolution of the image. The tradeoff is that a smaller camera gives you a better chance of navigating through a small pediatric ear canal partially occluded by wax to see the tympanic membrane.
The other key issue is where the camera is located. If the camera is located at the end of the speculum, there is a chance that it can be maneuvered through a window in the ear wax that is inevitably present to provide an unobstructed view of the eardrum. If the camera is not at the end of the speculum, the view of the eardrum will likely be incomplete.
However, as obstruction Reviews on otoscopes in the ear canal is increased, with either mild or significant ear wax, the view of the tympanic membrane is either partially or completely blocked for all devices except the WiscMed Wispr. This is the power of the WiscMed Wispr – it’s ability to obtain a diagnostic view of the eardrum in the most challenging ear canals.
In addition to the size and location of the camera, the speculum geometry determines access to the eardrum. The important geometry is both the size of the speculum at the tip, and the presence of a taper. A digital otoscope with a distal camera does not require a taper to the speculum.
The speculum is only required for cleanliness between patients. It is not the visual pathway as in traditional analog otoscopy. A speculum without a taper can provide better access to the tympanic membrane. In the photo below you can appreciate that only the WiscMed Wispr speculum has a unique, non-tapered geometry. This allows for the best chance of obtaining a diagnostic image in pediatric ear canals partially obstructed with wax.
