The tubing on your MDHearing behind-the-ear (BTE) hearing aid can collect moisture and debris that can potentially damage your hearing aids. The tubing air blower is a great, easy-to-use tool for removing that moisture to improve sound quality and prevent costly repairs.
In this article, we'll discuss:
What is a tubing air blower?
A tubing blower is a special bulb designed to remove moisture and debris from your hearing aid tubing. It creates pressure through the tubing to dislodge any moisture or debris that can get trapped in the hearing aid tubing.
How often should I use a tubing blower?
A tubing blower should be used in addition to your normal weekly hearing aid cleaning routine. It should also be used anytime you can see moisture in the tubing or when the hearing aid is not working and sounding as it should.
Important note: The tubing air blower does not replace your cleaning tool. You should regularly clean your behind-the-ear (BTE) hearing aids with the cleaning tool wire and brush.
How to use the tubing blower
- Before you use the tubing blower, you must remove the tubing from the hearing aid body.
- Then, place the tip of the tubing blower into the base (triangular part) of the tubing.
- Squeeze the bulb to manually create pressure to push out any potential moisture and/or debris.
- Lastly, reassemble the tubing back onto the hearing aid body.
