Valsalva's maneuver

Valsalva's maneuver

Valsalva's maneuver: Valsava's maneuver is a quick test to determine if the eustacian tubes, which provide a balance of air pressure to the back side of the eardrum, are blocked; the patient is asked to blow out through the nose while pinching off the nose and close their mouth, while a doctor or nurse looks through an otoscope. The eardrum will remain still if the tubes are blocked.
