What about the cleanliness infection control issues when using an iPhone otoscope on multiple patients daily?

Mike W., MD -

From Brett Ebling:
Thanks for the comment- these devices use the same or similar speculums as the bedside otoscopes, so the risk of contamination for the patient would theoretically be the same. Regarding the cleanliness of putting your personal phone several inches from a patient- that’s absolutely a risk to the provider that is worth considering and there is certainly a risk/benefit ratio that is worth considering. Thanks for listening!
