Tragal pressure

Tragal pressure

Pressure that is applied to the cartilage at the front, or anterior aspect of the ear canal (called the tragus), closing the canal and increasing pressure on the tympanic membrane (ear drum) [ Tragal pressure defined in the text: Effectiveness of ototopical antibiotics for chronic suppurative otitis media in Aboriginal children: a community-based, multicentre, double-blind randomised controlled trial] ] .

Tragal pumping is the act of repeatedly applying tragal pressure in quick succession to help deliver ear drops deeper into the ear canal. [ Tragal Pumping referenced in: Otolaryngology - Head and Neck Surgery , Volume 134 , Issue 1 , Pages 121 - 125] ]
