Abstract or Summary
  • This study compared and analyzed the practice of pediatricians in Salem Pediatric Clinic, Salem, OR, USA with physicians in Hospital de Niños Dr. Ricardo Gutierrez, Buenos Aires, Buenos Aires, Argentina in the treatment of acute otitis media in children. It was found that Argentine and USA practices for treatment of AOM use similar antibiotics including amoxicillin as first line choice, followed by amoxicillin clavulanate as second line choice, with varying third line choices. Argentine physicians were more likely to wait to prescribe antibiotics than the USA pediatricians, though no primary data collection was done in Argentina to mirror the data collected in the USA. In the argentine hospital used, there was not a standard system of data collection for patient clinical histories which made it difficult to follow patient’s cases. Future research is needed to determine if such high use of antibiotics in the treatment of AOM is causing resistance rates in both countries, or if the guidelines used should be followed by argentine hospitals while there is still a lack of a standardized data collection system in the public system.
