Note : the design of the EarPopper has changed over time.
One good indication that the procedure has been carried out successfully is to listen for a pitch change in the sound of the motor while swallowing. This is due to a temporary slowing of the motor due to back-pressure. You can experience this sound by plugging the hole with your finger while the device is running. This is the same sound you should hear when you swallow. If you don’t hear the pitch of the motor change, you may not have a good seal with the nostril or the user’s mouth may be open.
NOTE: If the user does not feel any change in the ear, repeat the procedure making sure the EarPopper remains firmly against the nostril, while they swallow with mouth closed.
(Always refer to instruction manual, inside product packaging, for proper use and care.)
Do not use the EarPopper in the presence of severe ear infection, upper respiratory infection, heavy nasal congestion, cold symptoms or a perforated eardrum.
If condition does not improve, consult your healthcare professional.
