Acute Otitis Media During Infancy: Parent-reported Incidence and Modifiable Risk Factors.(2017-03)Age at exposure to acute otitis media (AOM) risk factors such as day care attendance, lack of breastfeeding and tobacco smoke is little studied but important for targeting AOM prevention strategies. Moreover, studies are typically restricted to clinically diagnosed AOM, while a significant subset can occur outside the health care system, depending on the country setting. This study aims to determine risk factor exposure and effect of its timing within the first year of life on parent-reported AOM symptom episodes.
