On my Peds boards, Peds EM boards and EM boards, the question was asked:  what's the most accurate way to diagnose otitis media, and the answer was pneumatic otoscopy.  And no one does it.  I'd estimate that 15% of pediatricians, <10% of FPs and <5% of EM docs do it.  Useless.  As is almost everything else about otitis, now that I think about it.

So what happens to the most important part of the exam, pneumatic otoscopy?
