Application and Diagnostic tips
General practitioners have extensive professional knowledge of an extremely wide range of fields. They use primary diagnostic instruments such as otoscopes and ophthalmoscopes in daily practice.
The Brückner test with the direct ophthalmoscope (trans-illumination test, fundus red reflex test) enables easy and reliable diagnosis of amblyopia in children so that defective vision, strabismus and malformations can be treated at an early stage.
For practitioners who are at the start of their practical training in general medicine, the HEINE otoscopy compendium provides valuable tips on using otoscopes and examining the ear with them.
