Using the Blueberry Pediatrics Smart Otoscope with a Mac / Apple Computer


Using the otoscope camera with a mac computer
is easy. First, take the otoscope out of the box and
attach one of the included ear covers to the end of the camera. You may also want to wipe the ear cover with
one of the included alcohol swabs. Next, plug the otoscope into one of your computer’s
USB ports. Depending on the type of mac you have, you
may have to use one of the included USB-C or USB-A adapters. Just look for the adapter that fits the port
on your computer. On your computer, click the search icon on
the top right of the screen and search for Photobooth. When Photobooth opens, you just need to make
sure it’s using the otoscope camera. If it isn’t showing the video from the otoscope,
click Camera in the menu at the top of the screen and select USB Camera. The light on the end of your otoscope should
turn on. Use the wheel on the cord of the otoscope
to turn the light all the way up. You can now record photos and videos from
your otoscope camera and save them to your computer. You can switch between taking photos and videos
in Photobooth by clicking the icons on the bottom left. When you’re ready, start recording a video
and then carefully pull your child’s ear up and out. Slowly look inside the ear with the camera. Be gentle, and keep in mind that you may have
to pass some ear wax along the way, which is completely normal. If you can, try to get a clear look at your
child’s eardrum, also known as the tympanic membrane. Your pediatricians will look at the eardrum
to help make their diagnosis. You can see an example here of a tympanic
membrane. Once you’re done, just save your photos
or videos using Photobooth. Then you’ll be able to send them to your
Blueberry pediatricians through the messaging page or while you’re starting a sick visit.
