Study of lipid in the ear canal in canine otitis externa with Malassezia pachydermatis. (1/33)

An epidemiological investigation of 120 canine otitis externa cases in 1,370 dogs was done on the incidence rate, ear pinna shapes, breeds and their relationships. Eighty-five cases (12.6%) in 672 dogs with pendulous ears and 35 cases (5.0%) in 698 dogs with erect ears had otitis externa, and the difference between them was significant (P<0.05). Ninety-five auditory cerumen specimens were cultured for Malassezia pachydermatis (M. pachydermatis) and analyzed for concentrations of major fatty acids. Although rates of cases positive for M. pachydermatis in both ear pinna shapes were almost the same, i.e. 55.2% in the pendulous group and 53.6% in the erect group, the average total fatty acid level of the pendulous ear group was significantly (P<0.05) higher than that in the erect ear group after dismissing extraordinary levels in the Siberian husky. Isolated M. pachydermatis strains were examined for the effects of fatty acid supplementation on their growth. The majority of the strains utilized fatty acids and grew faster in fatty acid supplemented broth. These results suggest that M. pachydermatis, the predominant causative agent of canine otitis externa, prefers the auditory canal of dogs with lipid-rich earwax and grows fast, but growth strongly depends upon the canine breed.  (+info)

Attachment of Malassezia pachydermatis to the ear dermal cells in canine otitis externa. (2/33)

To investigate the predominance of Malassezia pachydermatis (M. pachydermatis) as a causative agent of canine otitis externa, ear cerumen samples were observed for adhesion of M. pachydermatis to the cornified epithelial cells by light and electron microscopes. The yeasts appeared not to adhere to the cornified epithelial cells directly, but they seemed to exist in the proximity of the epithelial cells with an electron opaque halo-like space around them. Polysaccharide and lipid staining techniques were conducted to identify the substances existing in that space. Lipid substances, not saccharides, were observed around the yeasts and the cornified epithelial cells. These results suggested that in the canine ear canal malassezia yeast attachment to the cornified epithelial cells is mediated by lipids.  (+info)

A quasi-randomised controlled trial of water as a quick softening agent of persistent earwax in general practice. (3/33)

BACKGROUND: Earwax is a common problem in general practice. The incidence of complaints owing to earwax in general practice in the Netherlands is 39.3 per 1000 patients. AIM: To determine the feasibility of a strategy using water as a quick dispersant for persistent earwax, compared with the usual strategy using oil as a dispersant for three days in a general practice setting. DESIGN OF STUDY: Practice based, prospective controlled intervention study. SETTING: Forty-two patients (59 ears) in four general practices in the Netherlands. METHOD: Patients with persistent earwax were randomised into an intervention group and a control group. For patients in the intervention group, water drops at body temperature were dropped into the impacted ear and the auditory meatus was blocked with a wet wad of cotton. After the patient had waited for 15 minutes in the waiting room a series of attempts at syringing was completed. Patients in the control group received the usual strategy and were instructed to soften the earwax with oil each night before sleeping and to block the auditory meatus with a wad of cotton, for three days. They were asked to come back after three days for the second attempt of syringing. For both strategies the mean number of syringing attempts (and 95% confidence interval) was calculated and compared by testing the difference between the means using a t-test for independent samples. All ears in which the wax was still persistent after another five syringing attempts were given the value of 6 in the calculations. RESULTS: The mean number of syringing attempts needed per patient in the intervention group was 3.0 (95% CI = 2.4 to 3.6) and for the control group, the mean was 2.4 (95% CI = 1.7 to 3.1). The difference between means (0.6, 95% CI = 0.3 to 1.5) was not statistically significant (P = 0.18). CONCLUSION: A patient with persistent earwax can stay in the waiting room following the initial series of five attempts at syringing, with water instilled in the ear canal. After 15 minutes, the earwax is removed as easily as in the usual strategy using oil instilled for three days. The strategy using water as a dispersant for persistent earwax is quick and more convenient for the patient.  (+info)

Effectiveness of ear syringing in general practice: a randomised controlled trial and patients' experiences. (4/33)

BACKGROUND: Ear syringing is a common procedure performed for a variety of symptoms in primary care. Reports of its effectiveness vary considerably and no randomised controlled trials (RCTs) have been performed. AIM: To estimate the effect of ear syringing on hearing thresholds and on symptoms leading to ear syringing in general practice. DESIGN OF STUDY: Randomised single-blind controlled trial. Before-and-after self-assessments of symptoms. SETTING: Patients from three general practices in the Bristol area attending twice-weekly clinics dedicated to ear syringing over a 12-week period. METHOD: Patients were randomly assigned to have their hearing tested before and after ear syringing, or twice before ear syringing. Changes in hearing threshold were measured by pure tone audiometry (PTA). All patients completed sef-assessment forms of symptoms using Likert scales before, and one week after, ear syringing. RESULTS: Hearing threshold improved by 10 dB or more in 34% (95% confidence interval [CI] = 21% to 47%) of the intervention group and 1.6% of control group (number needed to treat = 3.1, 95% CI = 2.2 to 5.2, P<0.001). The levels of improvement in the intervention group ranged between 15 dB and 36 dB. The symptoms that most commonly improved included hearing on the phone, pain, a feeling of blocked ears, and hearing one-to-one. There was a strong relationship between the change thresholds, as measure using PTA, and self-reports of hearing improvement. Secondary analysis was unable to identify predictors of objectively measured improvement. CONCLUSION: Ear syringing improved hearing threshold in a substantial proportion of patients. An even larger proportion reported an improvement in symptoms. It was not possible to predict which patients would benefit.  (+info)

Does earwax lose its pathogens on your auriscope overnight? (5/33)

OBJECTIVES: To describe the organisms cultured from general practitioners' auriscope earpieces; and to explore general practitioners' perceptions of the possibility of cross infection from contaminated auriscope earpieces and of how their auriscope earpieces are cleaned. DESIGN: Microbiological survey of auriscope earpieces in two general practices and a semistructured questionnaire sent to 105 general practitioners. SETTING: General practitioners served by one district general hospital microbiology laboratory in the north of England. RESULTS: Organisms were cultured from 41 (93%) of 44 auriscope earpieces, of which 14 (32%) carried potential pathogens; four (9%) were heavily contaminated. Of the 85 (81%) general practitioners who responded, 72 (85%) believed that contaminated auriscope earpieces could cause serious infection, 66 (78%) did not clean earpieces between patients, and 70 (82%) thought that patients would mind if they knew that dirty earpieces were used. CONCLUSIONS: Almost a third of auriscope earpieces were contaminated by pathogenic bacteria. Although general practitioners suspected this, most did not ensure that a clean earpiece was used for each patient.  (+info)

Itching in the ear canal due to hypocerumenosis. An effective method of treatment. (6/33)

Itching of the ear canal, with oozing, edema and cracking of the skin due to absence or insufficiency of wax was treated in more than 200 cases by instructing the patient to massage the ear canal with a cotton tip applicator soaked with a hydrocortisone preparation and inserted a half to three-quarters of an inch beyond the meatus. Some 95 per cent of patients reported good to excellent results in three to four days after the beginning of treatment. In the remainder results were fair.  (+info)

Impacted cerumen: composition, production, epidemiology and management. (7/33)

In the UK, some 2.3 million people suffer cerumen ('ear wax') problems serious enough to warrant management, with approximately 4 million ears syringed annually. Impacted cerumen is a major cause of primary care consultation, and a common comorbidity in ENT patients, the elderly, infirm and people with mental retardation. Despite this, the physiology, clinical significance and management implications of excessive and impacted cerumen remain poorly characterized. There are no well-designed, large, placebo-controlled, double-blind studies comparing treatments, and accordingly, the evidence surrounding the management of impacted cerumen is inconsistent, allowing few conclusions. The causes and management of impacted cerumen require further investigation. Physicians are supposed to follow the edicts and principles of evidence-based medicine and clinical governance. Currently, in patients with impacted cerumen, the lack of evidence makes this impossible.  (+info)

Predictors of hearing loss in school entrants in a developing country. (8/33)

BACKGROUND: Hearing loss is a prevalent and significant disability that impairs functional development and educational attainment of school children in developing countries. Lack of a simple and practical screening protocol often deters routine and systematic hearing screening at school entry. AIM: To identify predictors of hearing loss for a practical screening model in school-aged children. SETTINGS AND DESIGN: Community-based, retrospective case-control study of school entrants in an inner city. METHODS: Results from the audiologic and non-audiologic examination of 50 hearing impaired children in randomly selected mainstream schools were compared with those of a control group of 150 normal hearing children, matched for age and sex from the same population. The non-audiologic evaluation consisted of medical history, general physical examination, anthropometry, motor skills, intelligence and visual acuity while the audiologic assessment consisted of otoscopy, audiometry and tympanometry. STATISTICAL ANALYSIS: Multiple logistic regression analysis of significant variables derived from univariate analysis incorporating student t-test and chi-square. RESULTS: Besides parental literacy (OR:0.3; 95% CI:0.16-0.68), non-audiologic variables showed no association with hearing loss. In contrast, most audiologic indicators, enlarged nasal turbinate (OR:3.3; 95% CI:0.98-11.31), debris or foreign bodies in the ear canal (OR:5.4; 95% CI:1.0-36.03), impacted cerumen (OR:6.2; 95% CI:2.12-14.33), dull tympanic membrane (OR:2.2; 95% CI:1.10-4.46), perforated ear drum (OR:24.3; 95% CI:2.93-1100.17) and otitis media with effusion OME (OR:14.2; 95% CI:6.22-33.09), were associated with hearing loss. However, only parental literacy (OR:0.3; 95% CI:0.16-0.69), impacted cerumen (OR:4.0; 95% CI:1.66-9.43) and OME (OR:11.0; 95% CI:4.74-25.62) emerged as predictors. CONCLUSION: Selective screening based on the identification of impacted cerumen and OME will facilitate the detection of a significant proportion of hearing impaired school entrants.  (+info)

A 57 years old male patient who wore Hearing Aid unilaterally in left ear referred to our clinic to get Hearing Aid for his right ear [1,2]. In Otoscopy TM in right ear was normal but in left ear External ear Canal was full of wax (Cerumen) and Otoscopy was not possible [3]. Cerumen in left ear was probably produced because of wearing Hearing Aid with occluded ear mold [4]. Tympanometry was performed before referring patient for removing Cerumen. The result was Type A in right ear and Type B with ECV=5cc in left ear [2,5]. If Type B were false, ECV should be low but high ECV in left ear indicated perforation. Since large probe cuffs may increase ECV falsely Tympanometry was done again by changing rubber probe cuff for a better diagnosis.Result was not change and ECV with new cuff was still 5cc. After removing Cerumen by suction method vast central perforation was revealed in Otoscopy of left ear [6].. ...

Excessive/Impacted Cerumen Approximately 6% of the general population and 30% of the elderly population experiences episodes of impacted cerumen, and it is thought to be one of the most prevalent otic disorders.1 Individuals with excessive or impacted cerumen may experience a feeling of fullness or pressure in the ear and possibly a gradual loss of hearing. In addition, some may experience a dull sensation of pain. Carbamide peroxide 6.5% in anhydrous glycerin is the only FDA-approved nonprescription cerumen-softening agent for the softening and removal of excessive earwax in individuals 12 years of age and older. Cerumen-softening products can be used twice daily for up to 4 days. If symptoms persist after a 4-day period, patients should be referred to their primary care provider to seek further treatment. Water-Clogged Ears Due to the shape of an individuals ear canal, some patients may be more prone to an increased incidence of water-clogged ears. Excessive cerumen may also cause swelling, ...

Human earwax consists of wet and dry types. Dry earwax is frequent in East Asians, whereas wet earwax is common in other populations. Here we show that a SNP, 538G right arrow A (rs17822931), in the ABCC11 gene is responsible for determination of earwax type. The AA genotype corresponds to dry earwax, and GA and GG to wet type. A 27-bp deletion in ABCC11 exon 29 was also found in a few individuals of Asian ancestry. A functional assay demonstrated that cells with allele A show a lower excretory activity for cGMP than those with allele G. The allele A frequency shows a north-south and east-west downward geographical gradient; worldwide, it is highest in Chinese and Koreans, and a common dry-type haplotype is retained among various ethnic populations. These suggest that the allele A arose in northeast Asia and thereafter spread through the world. The 538G right arrow A SNP is the first example of DNA polymorphism determining a visible genetic trait ...

If you want to get technical, the name for earwax is cerumen. Earwax is healthy and serves important purposes including keeping our ear canals lubricated. A lack of earwax could cause the ears to become dry and itchy. It also acts as a protective barrier to keep anything, from dust to critters, from getting too close to the tympanic membrane, also called the eardrum. The ear canal is made up of "migratory skin cells". These skin cells grow in such a way that the dead skin...
Earwax, also known as cerumen, is a yellowish, waxy substance secreted in the ear canals. It plays an important role in the human ear canal, assisting in cleaning and lubrication, and also provides some protection from bacteria, fungi, and insects.

TY - JOUR. T1 - Radiation therapy of ceruminous gland carcinomas in dogs and cats.. AU - Theon, Alain P. AU - Barthez, P. Y.. AU - Madewell, B. R.. AU - Griffey, Stephen M. PY - 1994/8/15. Y1 - 1994/8/15. N2 - Nine dogs and 9 cats with ceruminous gland carcinoma were evaluated to determine whether they would receive radiation therapy. Tissue samples were reviewed to confirm the diagnosis and to assess completeness of resection in animals that had undergone surgery. Seven animals were excluded because surgical excision was determined histologically to have been complete (5) or because the owners did not wish to pursue treatment, because of advanced disease (2). The remaining 6 cats and 5 dogs, 6 of which had previously undergone surgery, were included in the study. The radiation therapy dose was 48 Gy, given in 12 fractions over 4 weeks. The product-limit estimate of mean progression-free survival time was 39.5 months. The estimate of 1-year progression-free survival rate was 56%. The tumor ...
Unless you have an earwax blockage, its best to leave your earwax alone -- dont try to remove it with cotton swabs or other devices.
So literally, it means put nothing in there. No Q-tips, no keys, no bobby pins, no fingers, no toys, no bugs, no nada. Nothing. Zippo. One, you can damage the external auditory canal, making it much more susceptible to infection. Two, you push the ear wax down towards the tympanic membrane where it can get lodged and cause cerumen impaction, which results in a reduction of hearing. And three, I seriously dont want to dig out that junk out of your ears. It exhausts me. Granted, digging cockroaches and beetles out of peoples ears exhausts me more, because I have to fight my gagging reflex the whole time and end up paranoid for weeks about a bug climbing into my own ear. Not fun, I tell you. Not fun ...

The caregivers are then asked, "How many suffer from serious hearing loss?", to which a typical reply might be: "Well, lets see, Mr. Jones has a hearing aid, and Mrs. Smith has two…thats all I can think of…the rest of our residents seem to hear fine." However, hearing screening tests, when administered to the entire residential population, generally reveal that every resident there suffers from a bilateral loss greater than 30 dB PTA, with many in excess of 65 dB PTA. And what about the two patients who already have hearing aids? Mr. Jones hearing aid was lost in the wash six months ago, and Mrs. Smiths aids were plugged solidly with cerumen, each sporting a dead, crusted-over zinc-air battery requiring a pocket knife to remove.

The outer auditory canal, which measures about 3 cm (about 1.25 in) in length, is a tubular passageway lined with delicate hairs and small glands that produce a wax-like secretion called cerumen. The canal leads from the pinna to a thin taut membrane called the eardrum or tympanic membrane, which is nearly round in shape and about 10 mm (0.4 in) wide. It is the vibration of the eardrum that sends sound waves deeper into the ear." ...

You will be asked to lie down on your side. The candle is inserted into your outer ear and the other end is lit by the therapist using a piece of cloth. As the candle burns it creates a gentle heat, which changes the air pressure within the ear, and causes excess ear wax to soften and fall out of the ear. The therapist will prevent any molten wax from falling onto you by ensuring that the candle fits through a paper plate which will catch any debris. The candle is removed and your ear and face massaged. If you suffer from sinusitis then the massage will be concentrated around your sinuses. A session can last up to an hour although this may take longer if both ears required treatment or there is a very excessive amount of ear wax. You may be asked to place a few drops of warm almond or olive oil in your ear prior to your visit to soften ear wax.. This treatment is suitable for children as well as adults.. ...

And my ear wax is another problem. Ever since I can remember Ive always made a lot of ear wax - I even had tubes put in my ears when I was a tyke. What makes things complicated is that doctors actually tell you not to clean your ears out with cotton balls or Q-tips, because you can irritate your ear canal (which I have done, its not pleasant). So when your ear starts to fill up with wax because youve had the most annoying cold for the past two weeks, what do you do? Well when I was at Minnesota I went to the student health clinic (which was very good). It was right down the way, and I didnt even have to go outside to get there, so Id just bop on down and get what is called an "ear lavage" which is when they shoot water in your ear with a big syringe to dislodge the wax until it all comes out. It took about fifteen minutes. Now, however, the doctors clinic is a little further away and not quite as easy to get appointments at, so Ive been trying to figure out a way to do this on my own. ...

Preventing ear wax build up in your dogs is not very hard task if you do not mind checking the ears periodically like every month or so, and it really depends on the type of ears your dog has but, the dogs with the long floppy and furry ears are the ones that are going to have the worst time with a problematic ear wax build up.. The reason being is that the opening of the ear is totally covered making the inner ear hot therefore making it sweat so, dirt sticks real good to wet and greasy surfaces like the inside of a dogs ear. The more fur the dog has makes it so much easier to collect and retain dirt therefore; keeping the ears from getting any air so they could dry out naturally.. Ears need a good amount air to work in the proper way and dogs were not suppose to have those ear problems because, other wild animals do not have this problem.

The digestive system first involves potential food being taken in via the ear. The food gradually travels passively due to lubrication caused by ear wax. It is essential that an ample amount of ear wax is maintained in order to maintain a healthy system. This is why the instance of poor digestion in young men aged 13-19 is extremely rare. After the food has moved through the ear, it eventually passes into the throat. The throat functions mainly due to small invisible ants (Antisphanius Mela). These ants are essential as they transport pieces of food into the stomach. These ants are capable of lifting up to 600,000,000 times their own body weight. If they were the size of an average human, they could lift the Empire State Building or even Micheal Moore. It is also noted that smoking weed gives the ants a high, and they all immediately gather for a weed party that takes place in the brain. ...

I was taking the kids to the daycare and to get there I have to drive up this hill that has maybe a dozen cars parked along the right side of the road, making it a one lane road and forcing you to pull over to the side to let a car pass if you encounter one coming at you. Usually, no problem. Today, as I turned onto the road, I saw, way at the top, a car standing still but with his lights on and looking like he was going to drive down the hill. So I started up and then he started to move and by the time I got to the end of the parked cars, where the road is now wide enough for two cars he had blocked the road. He moved even further forward and tried to pull off to the side far enough for me to squeeze between him and the last parked car. Of course there was not enough room. So he starts honking and waving his arms, I guess to let me know that he is insane. So, instead of backing up one car length so that I can get past him, he forces me to go in reverse all the way back past at least a dozen ...

I am a 29 year old male. About 4 months ago I started to get slight dizzy spells and light headed everyday. I got sick for a week. At the time I was about 3 months into 150mg of Doryx for my acne. I was also a heavy drinker. About 6 nights a week. After about a week of this I stopped taking the doryx and cut down drinking to once every couple of weeks if that. I was also experiencing chest pain which I attribute to acid reflux. I started taking a PPI which helped with that. It seemed that when I drank my symptoms would get worse the next couple of days. I went to the doctor and they did blood tests, which all came back fine. The doctor said that it could be because of the excessive ear wax I had. I then went to an ENT and they cleared my ears out. This didnt effect the light headedness at all. I went back to the doctor a couple times in the next weeks after this. First he recommended vitamins then said it could be allergies since I was also congested and suggested claratin D. Neither of these ...

Persistent ringing or buzzing that can only be heard by the sufferer is the tell-tale sign of tinnitus. Technically, tinnitus itself is actually a symptom of some underlying condition. To receive proper treatment, its important to find what this underlying cause is, but sometimes that is easier said than done.. The first step in getting relief from tinnitus is usually to visit a doctor. They will begin by asking you a number of questions about your symptoms and your medical history. Its important to know when the symptoms began, if the ringing comes and goes or if its constant, and if there are certain situations that make the ringing worse. Next, the doctor will check to see if there is an obvious physical reason for the tinnitus. They will check for excessive ear wax buildup since pressure from the buildup could be causing the tinnitus. They will also see if certain things, such as clenching your jaw, make the ringing worse. Sometimes your doctor will also want to do extra tests such as ...
Fats or Lipids Used by the body for: stored energy, insulation, and cell membranes. In cell membranes fats called phospholipids help regulate the water and ions going in and out of the cell membrane. Other uses of fats by the body include the production of cholesterol, some hormones, skin oils, and ear wax. Fats are broken down into fatty acids by enzymes, bile salts, and acid in the small intestine before being absorbed into the blood. Fats have twice as many calories per gram than a carbohydrate. Fats are more difficult to digest than carbos, and so are often stored The largest category or type of fat is called a triglyceride.
