89. Otitis media with effusion in under 12s: surgery

#notice-of-rights). Page 5 of 28Introduction Introduction Otitis media with effusion (OME) is a common condition of early childhood in which an accumulation of fluid within the middle ear space causes hearing impairment. The hearing loss is usually transient and self-limiting over several weeks, but may be more persistent and lead to educational, language and behavioural problems. OME may be overlooked because of the insidious nature of the condition, and suspicion of hearing loss in children must (...) be acted upon effectively. In most instances of uncomplicated OME, no intervention is required because the fluid clears spontaneously and the hearing recovers. A period of observation of the hearing loss over 3 months (with accurate audiometry), and its impact on the child's development, is recommended in order to determine whether resolution occurs or if further treatment is needed. This may require better and more timely access to paediatric audiology services than is currently available in some
