Otitis: The Expert’s Diagnostic Guide

May 26, 2020
WiscMed highly recommends the book Otitis: The Expert’s Diagnostic Guide by Michael Poole, MD, PhD; Stephanie Ambrose, MD; and Matt Crawford, PA-C. With the power of the WiscMed Wispr, it is now possible to see details during clinical ear exams not previously possible. Because of this, it’s helpful to have a guide to the most common conditions you will see. Ear infections can present in many different forms, and, perhaps more importantly, some presentations can fool the examiner into thinking there is an infection when none is present.Read more about Otitis: The Expert’s Diagnostic Guide
