Tubes, Tongues, Tonsils and Toys: an ENT Update – PediaCast CME 043
Dr Charles Elmaraghy stops by the studio with an ENT update for pediatricians. We explore the ins and outs of ear tube surgery, current thinking on tongue tie, reasons for taking tonsils out and what to expect after the surgery. We also cover foreign bodies in the ears and nose. Plus, a summertime favorite… swimmer’s ear! We hope you can join us.
