Dr. Ronald Chin’s Necessary ENT Instruments
Dr. Ronald Chin relies on essential instruments for examining and treating ENT conditions. These include the otoscope, which allows him to see inside the ears, and the tongue depressor, used to hold down the tongue for better throat visibility.
To remove earwax or foreign objects, Dr. Chin utilizes the wax hook and Crocodile ear forceps. For nasal examinations, he employs the Jobson-Horne probe, Tilley’s nasal forceps, and the Thudicum nasal speculum.
A tuning fork (tuned to 512 Hz) helps assess hearing, while a light source provides illumination. Different sizes of ear specula aid in examining the ear canal. Curettes are used to remove earwax or collect tissue samples if necessary gently. For suctioning excess fluids from the nose and ear, Dr. Chin employs nasal and ear suction devices.
In certain cases, special equipment like a flexible nasoendoscope, microscope, or tympanometer may be required to provide a more comprehensive assessment.
