On-line CME Discusses Acute and Chronic Sinusitis

OSUWexnerbloglogo2014 On-line CME Discusses Acute and Chronic Sinusitis. Sinuses have evolved in a lot of different ways to serve different purposes and they gave our ancestors important survival advantages. But when your head is all stopped up, your nose is running, and you have an excruciating pain above your cheek, you don’t really care, you just want to get better. Every year, about 30 million Americans get acute sinusitis and one out of every eight people have chronic sinusitis. On this CME webcast, we’re going to tell you everything you need to know about acute and chronic sinusitis. Joining our moderator in the studio is the Director of the Division of Sinus and Allergy here at Ohio State, Assistant Professor of Otolaryngology, Dr. Bradley Otto.
