Description

Join Dr. Douglas Johnston, Pediatric ENT with Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children's Hospital at Silver Cross, for a Zoom lecture on the “Impact and Treatment of Recurrent Otitis Media and Chronic Middle Ear Fluid in Children” at 5 p.m. March 9.

In his lecture, Dr. Johnston will show how an underdeveloped eustachian tube – a 1.5-inch conduit between the nasal area and the middle ear – can trap negative pressure and middle ear fluid, which can possibly become infected.

If caused by a virus, like the common cold, the blockage and resultant ear fluid generally doesn’t result in significant ear pain, Dr. Johnston said. But if the fluid causes an infection, he added, the children and their parents will know it because of fevers, irritability, or poor sleep.
