Update on Pediatric Clinical Applications of Otoacoustic Emissions (OAEs)
This 60-minute webinar will address the prevalence of hearing abnormality, the importance of screening at all ages and the benefit of objective screening versus subjective screening.
Join Dr. Hall and learn more about OAEs and its clinical application in pediatrics to enable earlier diagnosis and treatment.

Hearing Loss: Get The Facts
Hearing loss is a major contributor to the global burden of disability, however it can often be prevented and have a reduced impact with early intervention.
Otitis Media: Get The Facts
Globally, in children less than 5 years of age the incidence of acute otitis media (AOM) is 10.85%, which equates to more than 700 million cases each year.1
Chronic otitis media is often associated with mild to moderate hearing loss.
In fact, acute and chronic suppurative otitis media is responsible for hearing loss in approximately 98.7 million people.1

Why the Right Tools and Technology Matter
It's estimated that 80% of all children will develop acute otitis media (AOM) at least once. Of those children, between 80% and 90% will experience at least one episode of otitis media with effusion (OME) before they reach school age.2
Can technology help reduce antibiotic overprescription in children? Find out how advanced otoscopes help physicians diagnose and treat acute otitis media.
Smartphone Enabled Otoscopy in Neurotology and Otology
This study demonstrates the utility of a smartphone enabled otoscope for use in telemedicine. A single digital image of the tympanic membrane obtained by a smartphone-enabled otoscope resulted in correct diagnosis of 96% normal tympanic membranes and 100% abnormal tympanic membranes.3
Effective And Efficient Pre-School Hearing Screening
This article addresses the current problem around hearing loss in children and current screening models and provides a summary of a new evidence-based strategy to provide effective and efficient pre-school hearing screening.
Universal Newborn Hearing Screening
Did you know that the incidence of sensorineural hearing loss is 1 to 3 per 1,000 live births and even higher in high risk neonates? 4
Patient outcomes are optimal if hearing augmentation detection and intervention occur within the first 6 months from birth.4
Early detection of ear diseases such as otitis media and hearing loss is key to succesful and effective management.1
In the event hearing loss is detected, early intervention is important to reduce the negative impact of hearing loss on language and cognitive development.
