With summer pool season in full swing allow me to freestyle a little on a common topic that many Emergency Departments and Urgent Cares seem to be swimming in every summer. This episode of PEM Currents dives right into Otitis Externa – AKA Swimmer’s Ear and reviews diagnosis and treatment. If you were treading water and looking for this topic the wade is over.
Listen to the mp3 right here:
