When the ear is damaged by blunt trauma or other injury, your ear may start to form into a hematoma. This is when the ear starts to inflate and deform. What this means specifically is the blood vessels connecting your skin to your ear cartilage has been separated, and the blood has no where else to go but to fill up that space in between.
If this is agitated in any way, this may continue to inflate and become more uncomfortable and irritating. The only way to get rid of the blockage is by draining the blood out of it.*
CATCH IT EARLY OR DRAIN!
*Rescue Ear™ even before it starts to form and save the drain! Snap it on whenever your ear starts to feel differently.
In order to eliminate the hematoma, it is mandatory to drain the blood from it. The drainage occurs by using a medical syringe to draw the blood out (seek help from a licensed physician). This will help eliminate the hematoma.
KEEP THE PRESSURE!
If there is no pressure on where the hematoma was, the blood flow can start to build up again.
Rescue Ear™ will not work if there is any fluid present.
Use the strength of Rescue Ear™ by simply cleaning the affected area with a minimum 70% isopropyl alcohol and snapping it to place! Evenly distribute the pressure, making slight adjustments after short periods of time—appx 1 to 2 hour increments. This will significantly reduce the possibilities of the hematoma reforming.
NEVER ASSUME IT IS HEALED!
It is mandatory to keep compression on for at least 4-7 days. Only remove Rescue Ear™ in the morning, rather than at night, to prevent another round of draining!
Always inspect the ear throughout the day and clean as needed. Make sure there are no signs that may require medical attention.
