What is the EarPopper?
Everyone can relate to the discomfort of ear pressure. You might experience this while flying on an airplane or traveling on a fast moving elevator (especially when you have a cold or allergies). The pressure on the eardrums and the related discomfort can be unbearable. Not to mention the reduction in hearing from the pressure on the eardrums and the potential for more serious problems if the pressure isn’t relieved.
The EarPopper device is currently being used in health care practioners' offices (and in homes) around the world for helping relieve ear pressure and treating the problem at the source – The Eustachian Tube. (See illustrations below)
The Eustachian Tube (ET) is the body’s only mechanism for equalizing pressure and ventilating the space behind the eardrum (Middle Ear). The ET normally opens when you swallow or yawn. When functioning normally the ET keeps the middle ear ventilated and the pressure equalized.
When the ET doesn’t function normally – and the middle ear isn’t ventilated properly – the middle ear becomes a closed space with unbalanced pressure. An unbalanced middle ear forces pressure on the eardrum which is not only uncomfortable, but also affects your hearing. This closed space also cannot drain properly – resulting in fluid build up behind the eardrum.
When you mix a dark, moist, unbalanced middle ear space with the common cold or allergies – you have the perfect breeding ground for an infection.
The EarPopper helps avoid and even eliminate an unbalanced middle ear. The EarPopper opens the ET with air. It is fast, simple and completely safe as proven in numerous clinical studies – including the latest study published in the Ear, Nose & Throat Journal and funded by the National Institutes of Health.
The EarPopper has been clinically proven to relieve negative ear pressure. Negative ear pressure can cause:
