Hammer and Otoscope ENT examination in the CS!

Hi guys,
I am sorry to come up with this stupid question, but IŽd rather ask now.
In the test center. Are the otoscope and ophthalmoscope attached to the wall? Because in the videos (Cskills a table is prepared with the material).
We must get the speculum for the ear exam and throw in the garbage or is there a specific place where we put them?
I appreciate your help

Yes both are attached to the wall and yes you have to throw the speculum in the garbage after you are done. You will get the chance to see and try all the instruments and the examining bed before you start the exam.

Default Quick related question

Do I need to change the speculum after examining the ears and place a new one before examining the nose?
