Ok…I admit. This episode is low hanging fruit. But to be fair, I did cover “Approach to Sore Throat in Children” last year because it is so common in pediatric practice. Acute Otitis Media (AOM) rounds out the other “most common” condition to give you a big chunk of outpatient and emergency medicine reasons for a pediatric visit. We will cover everything you ever wanted to know about AOM, including the indications for tympanostomy tube placement.
