Acute otitis media (AOM) is one of the most common reasons that patients present to our office. Not surprisingly, ear infections are also the most common reason why children receive a prescription for a course of antibiotics.
In today’s episode, we are going to talk to Peggy Kelley, MD about the classic symptoms and treatment for acute otitis media, safe antibiotic prescribing practices, and how to approach treatment failure and ear tubes. Dr. Kelley is a pediatric otolaryngologist at Children’s Hospital Colorado and Associate Professor of Otolaryngology at the University of Colorado School of Medicine.
