After the Ventilation Tube Procedure – Low Pressure Pulse Therapy

Recovery

After the ventilation tube (vent tube) procedure, you’ll be monitored in the recovery room for about an hour. You can usually go home after that if all goes well. You may feel a little groggy if you’ve been given an anaesthetic.

Your ENT or ear specialist will give you specific instructions about how to live with your vent tube, including when you should get immediate attention and when to schedule follow-up appointments. He or she may also prescribe antibiotic ear drops for a few days.

After the Procedure

Your doctor will tell you when to begin using your low pressure pulse device after your vent tube procedure. Just remember to perform your treatments exactly as prescribed. You may even begin to notice that your dizziness or vertigo symptoms are less severe and less frequent after you start treatment. It’s very important that you don’t skip any treatments. Please consult your doctor if you have any questions in regard to your treatment.
