Children with ear infections leave parents in 'misery' - survey
Date : - 23/05/2012
The misery that children's ear infections inflict on their parents has been spelled out in a global survey that included 250 New Zealand families.

In the survey of 2867 caregivers in 12 countries, at least three-quarters of parents said that during their child's ear infections, sleepless nights placed a significant strain on them.

"[It] showed that pain, disturbed sleep and irritability were considered to be a significant burden on children with the infection," said one of the researchers, children's ear nose and throat surgeon Dr Colin Barber, of Auckland's Starship hospital.

"This survey also shows that acute otitis media [middle ear infection] affects the whole family due to sleepless nights and worry, or disruption to working lives and potential loss of income."

Dr Barber presented the findings of the research, sponsored by pharmaceutical company GlaxoSmithKline, to a meeting of the European Society of Paediatric Otorhinolaryngology in the Netherlands at the weekend.
