Otitis Media

Otitis media (OM) is an infection of the middle ear. Three out of four children will have at least one episode of OM by the age of three years.

Preterm infants are vulnerable to infections with normally harmless bacteria which rapidly colonise all newborns after birth. As well, preterm infants fare worse from infections with more harmful organisms such as Escherichia coli and Candida albicans.
