[Acute otitis media in children: an evidence-based practice guideline].
Klin Padiatr 2004 Jul-Aug; 216(4):215-24KP

Abstract

Acute Otitis media is one of the most common acute respiratory infections managed in primary care and the most common infection among in children. Diagnostic criteria, however, do not always correspond to scientific evidence. They often differ depending on individual preferences and competences. Treatment, also, is controversial. In Germany, most children attending their pediatrician or primary care physician will be prescribed antibiotics. Evidence from several randomized studies and systematic reviews suggests that routine usage of antibiotics provides only modest benefit. The benefit of prescribing antibiotics should not only be balanced against the increased likelihood of side effects such as diarrhoea but also against the potential to contribute to longterm antibiotic resistance.
