Valsalva is the forceful expiration of air with the patient's mouth and nose held shut.  When performed in this fashion, air will be forced into the middle ear cavity and help treat eustachian tube dysfunction.  This patient has a large posterior-superior retraction pocket of the tympanic membrane.  By forcing air in the middle ear, he is able to blow out the pocket.
