[Comment] Helping children with hearing loss from otitis media with effusion

Otitis media with effusion occurs during viral upper respiratory tract infections in around two-thirds of infants and young children because their Eustachian tube anatomy and function do not provide adequate ventilation and drainage of natural mucus production during a cold until the age of around 5 years. Children are also much more prone to develop a middle ear infection during an upper respiratory tract viral infection. Even with the introduction and widespread use of pneumococcal conjugate vaccines, acute otitis media following an upper respiratory tract viral infection remains common in childhood.
