Objective To investigate the effects of hearing loss caused by chronic otitis media (COM) on acquiring social skills. Subjects and Methods A case-control study of 90 patients, including patients with COM, age range 15–30 years, was conducted in the otorhinolaryngology ward of Tabriz University Hospital. Social skills were assessed with a social skills questionnaire. Results Social skill scores were found to be lower in hearing-impaired COM patients compared with the control group (P < 0.001… Expand
Surgery for otitis media among Indigenous Australians
Surgical closure of the tympanic membrane stops the aural discharge and improves the hearing sufficiently to avoid the need for hearing aids in most cases, and the success rate of surgery conducted in rural and remote Australia is below urban benchmarks. Expand
Occurrence of and referral to specialists for pain-related diagnoses in First Nations and non–First Nations children and youth
First Nations children were diagnosed with more pain than non– first Nations children, but did not access specific specialists or mental health services, and were not diagnosed with mental health conditions, at the same rate as their non–First Nations counterparts. Expand

Cochlear implants and bone-conduction implants may offer objective and subjective benefits of hearing for people with these conditions who are deemed inappropriate candidates for standard hearing aids and do not meet the current indication for publicly funded cochlear implants in Canada. Expand

Glue ear, a condition resulting in intermittent hearing loss in young children, affects about 80% of young children under seven years old. About 60% of children will spend a third of their timeExpand
Empathy in paediatric intensive care nurses part 1: Behavioural and psychological correlates
Paediatric intensive care work demands, such as patient pain exposure, may be associated with nurse's higher report of empathy and pain in self and others, but also with higher levels of secondary trauma and burnout, when compared with allied health professionals. Expand


Socio-economic status and hearing loss in chronic suppurative otitis media in Nigeria
About one fifth of patients with CSOM have SHL, and early diagnosis and management of CSOM is imperative to improve outcome. Expand
The Relationship of Otitis Media in Early Childhood to Attention Dimensions During the Early Elementary School Years
Findings do not support a direct linkage of a history of OME and associated hearing loss to difficulties in selective/focused attention or sustained attention in early elementary school children and relationships between sociodemographic variables and attention-related functions appear stronger. Expand
Level of psychosocial adaptation in young school children with otitis media.
The level of psychosocial adaptation seems to be compromised in the Dutch ENT sample for both internalising (emotional symptoms) and externalising (hyperactivity-inattention) behaviour dimensions, which indirectly supports the cumulative effects of a disease history with chronic otitis media, resulting in poorer attention skills and fewer social interactions present.

Behaviour and developmental effects of otitis media with effusion into the teens
After adjustments for covariates, hyperactive and inattentive behaviour problems were evident as late as 15 years, and lower IQ associated with OME remained significant to 13 years, while the largest effects were observed for deficits in reading ability between 11 and 18 years. Expand
Does Otitis Media in Early Childhood Affect Reading Performance in Later School Years?
Reading performance was not affected once otitis media had been cured and hearing restored; reading scores of the healed children were almost the same as those of the otitis-free children. Expand
Otitis Media, Hearing Loss, and Language Learning: Controversies and Current Research
Ass associations between OME and perceiving speech in noise and tasks that require equal binaural hearing have been reported but have not been adequately studied with regard to functional outcomes. Expand

After adjustment for social background and maternal malaise, the developmental sequelae of middle ear disease remained significant even at 10 years, and the largest effects were observed in behaviour problems and language test data at age 5, but effect sizes were modest overall. Expand
