TM Assess all quadrants Look for malleus, incus Record abnormalities
Pars flaccida Long process incus Handle of malleus Umbo Pars tensa Canal wall
Perforations Central perforation Marginal perforation
Don’t forget Tuning fork tests Simple free field tests Look at audiological investigations
Inspection Good light Look at skin and scars Assess shape Look at vestibules by lifting tip
Palpation/inspection Occlude each nostril in turn and assess air entry Look at misting of tongue depressor
Anterior rhinoscopy Use thuddicums speculum hold it properly!

View of larynx Tongue base Vallecula Epiglottis False cord Vocal cord Piriform fossa Arytenoid cartilage
Neck Inspect Palpate Auscultate
Inspection Scars Lumps Sinuses Asymmetry Stoma Ask patient to swallow and protrude tongue Ask patient to breathe deeply Ask patient to count to ten
