Can an Earcheck check for infections in adults?

Q: "I have a question about Ear Check. Can it be used to detect ear infections in adults? Thank you. daniele.

Answer: Not unless the adult is 19 years or younger. The EarCheck EC-2 is FDA cleared and UL approved for use on children only. EarCheck is not validated or approved for use in those older than 19. This new unit (2007) does not use removeable tips.

The EarCheck Monitor should NOT be used on children with the following conditions as it may provide an inaccurate reading:
  • Under 6 months of age.
  • Ear tubes (ventilation tubes).
  • Water in the outer ear, such as swimmer's ear.
  • Known perforation or rupture of the eardrum.
  • Facial or ear deformities.
  • Visible drainage of pus or blood in the outer ear canal
