Software DDiescription

OTOcam Software Module allows for image capture, image viewing, and image annotation. Requires 1.5GHz Pentium IV CPU or better with minimum 1GB RAM and 64MB graphics memory. Windows XP w/ SP2 or higher and Windows Vista 32bit with SP1.

Care and Maintenance

Do not stare into the light beam or point it in the direction of other people’s eyes. The intended use of the AURICAL OTOcam 300 is intermittent operation 4 min. / 50%, which means that the camera should not be used for more than 4 minutes at a time and then it should rest in the cradle for an equivalent amount of time. Place the OTOcam in the base when you are not using it, it will activate the built-in heater to pre-heat the camera tip, so that the difference in the camera tip temperature and the ear canal are minimal. When the software is running, the right ear button saves images as right ear and the left ear button saves images as the left ear. You can use the OTOcam with or without the supplied software, if used without images/videos can be saved using windows software. Snap the specula on and off, dispose after a single use.

Suggested Cleaning Procedure

Disconnect the OTOcam from the computer. Wipe the camera head, the plugs and the cable with a soft cloth or sponge with a non-alcoholic cleaning agent. If the glass surface of the lens is very dirty, use a cotton pad with alcohol to clean. After cleaning, remove the cleaning agents thoroughly by rinsing with pure, deionized water. Finally, carefully dry the OTOcam and the glass window of the lens with a soft cloth. Chemical Disinfection: follow instructions of the disinfectant manufacturer for concentration, duration of immersion, and appropriate handling. Immerse the OTOcam and camera cable into the disinfectant. Make sure that all surfaces to be disinfected are covered by the disinfectant. To increase efficiency you can add an additional cleaning agent which is compatible with the disinfectant. After the disinfectant, rinse the OTOcam and cable thoroughly using sterile deionized water. Finally, dry all parts using a sterile, soft cloth or pressurized air.
