Otitis media with effusion Otitis media with effusion - NICE CKS Clinical Knowledge Summaries Share Otitis media with effusion: Summary Otitis media with effusion (OME), also known as 'glue ear', is characterized by a collection of fluid within the middle ear space without signs of acute inflammation. OME is the most common cause of hearing impairment in childhood. The hearing loss usually resolves over several weeks or months, but may be more persistent and, if bilateral, may lead (...) to developmental problems. Symptoms of OME vary with time and the age of the child. OME is most common in young children, with the incidence highest in those aged 2 and 5 years. It presents most commonly in the winter months. The exact cause of OME is uncertain, but over 50% of cases are thought to follow an episode of acute otitis media, especially in children under 3 years of age. Persistence of OME may be caused by one or more of the following: Impaired eustachian tube function causing poor aeration

Physical examination will reveal a bulging, opacified tympanic membrane with decreased mobility (...) . The membrane may be white, yellow, pink, or red. Diagnosis is generally made with conventional otoscopy. Additional tests might include pneumatic otoscopy or tympanometry to confirm the presence of an effusion. Treatment includes pain control with analgesics and might include antibiotics. Complications include perforation of the tympanic membrane and, rarely, mastoiditis, seventh cranial nerve palsy, or sigmoid sinus thrombosis.

5. Antibiotics for otitis media with effusion in children. (PubMed)

Antibiotics for otitis media with effusion in children. Otitis media with effusion (OME) is characterised by an accumulation of fluid in the middle ear behind an intact tympanic membrane, without the symptoms or signs of acute infection. Since most cases of OME will resolve spontaneously, only children with persistent middle ear effusion and associated hearing loss potentially require treatment. Previous Cochrane reviews have focused on the effectiveness of ventilation tube insertion (...) of ventilation tube insertion (two trials, 121 children) or in tympanic membrane sequelae (one trial, 103 children), while low quality evidence indicated that children treated with antibiotics were less likely to have acute otitis media episodes within four to eight weeks (five trials, 1086 children; NNTB 18) and within six months post-randomisation (two trials, 199 children; NNTB 5). It should, however, be noted that the beneficial effect of oral antibiotics on acute otitis media episodes within four

Systemic corticosteroids for acute otitis media in children. Acute otitis media (AOM) is a common acute infection in children. Pain is its most prominent and distressing symptom. Antibiotics are commonly prescribed for AOM, although they have only a modest effect in reducing pain at two to three days. There is insufficient evidence for benefits of other treatment options, including systemic corticosteroids. However, systemic corticosteroids are potent anti-inflammatory drugs, and so

Antibiotics for acute otitis media in children. Acute otitis media (AOM) is one of the most common diseases in early infancy and childhood. Antibiotic use for AOM varies from 56% in the Netherlands to 95% in the USA, Canada and Australia. This is an update of a Cochrane review first published in The Cochrane Library in Issue 1, 1997 and previously updated in 1999, 2005, 2009 and 2013.To assess the effects of antibiotics for children with AOM.We searched CENTRAL (2015, Issue 3), MEDLINE (1966 (...) of children with tympanic membrane perforations (RR 0.37, 95% CI 0.18 to 0.76; NNTB 33) and halved contralateral otitis episodes (RR 0.49, 95% CI 0.25 to 0.95; NNTB 11) compared with placebo. However, antibiotics neither reduced the number of children with abnormal tympanometry findings at three months (RR 0.97, 95% CI 0.76 to 1.24) nor the number of children with late AOM recurrences (RR 0.93, 95% CI 0.78 to 1.10) when compared with placebo.

16. Influenza vaccines for preventing acute otitis media in infants and children. (PubMed)

Influenza vaccines for preventing acute otitis media in infants and children. Acute otitis media (AOM) is one of the most common infectious diseases in children. It has been reported that 64% of infants have an episode of AOM by the age of six months and 86% by one year. Although most cases of AOM are due to bacterial infection, it is commonly triggered by a viral infection. In most children AOM is self limiting, but it does carry a risk of complications. Since antibiotic treatment increases (...) the risk of antibiotic resistance, influenza vaccines might be an effective way of reducing this risk by preventing the development of AOM.To assess the effectiveness of influenza vaccine in reducing the occurrence of acute otitis media in infants and children.We searched the Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials (CENTRAL), MEDLINE, Embase, CINAHL, LILACS, Web of Science, the WHO International Clinical Trials Registry Platform, and ClinicalTrials.gov (15 February 2017).
