Rick and Mizuho discuss non-infectious otitis media with effusion, an abundantly common but underdiagnosed entity that presents to offices and urgent cares with startling frequency. Pathogenesis, identification, and management are covered including a review of the data surrounding systemic corticosteroids, nasal steroids, antihistamines, and manual insufflation.

This is great for kids. I love it. Many of us have been promoting "equalization" for OME for a long time. It is the only effective means of treatment. Adults can accomplish the same thing by just pinching their nose and blowing. Well known to divers. Thanks for the great idea and the fun conversations on RAP. I listen daily. Keep up the good work.

Such an awesome treatment! Do medical supply stores even sell the balloon, or is this something patients have to purchase on their own?
