Mobile Ear Clinic

 

 

The Mobile Ear Van Clinic visits schools and venues across the Lakes DHB catchment areas and is a free ear health service for children. We have two mobile ear vans, one based in Rotorua, and the second van covering the Taupo and Turangi areas.

PREVENTING EAR INFECTIONS

Keep your nose clear. When you have mucous in your nose… use a tissue.

Two or three blows may not clear all the mucous from the nose. When you blow your nose it is best to blow five or six times. Blowing your nose will assist with glue ear prevention.

Blow your nose… 
  • When you get up in the morning
  • Before you go to school or daycare 
  • While you’re at school 
  • When you get home from school 
  • Before you go to bed
 

How to blow…

1 Breathe in through your mouth
2 Close lips tightly
3 Blow out firmly into your tissue
