OBJECTIVE Spectral gradient acoustic reflectometry (SG-AR) can be used to detect middle ear effusion (MEE). Since both families and primary health care systems carry the burden of otitis media, our aim was to determine whether layman parents could be taught to use the SG-AR reliably.

METHODS We enrolled 185 children (age 6-35 months) whose parents were willing to use(More)
