LENEXA, Kan., Feb. 17 /PRNewswire/ -- Parents are blogging and tweeting away this winter on the topic of ear infections, which are the No. 1 reason for children's visits to the emergency room.

"Parents often turn to the Internet for advice on childhood illnesses, especially ear infections," says Joe Kessinger of Innovia Medical, manufacturer of the EarCheck Middle Ear Monitor. "We know they're online seeking advice and offering tips to each other. We want to offer EarCheck as a solution."

EarCheck is a home-use device that helps parents accurately detect if middle ear fluid is present in a child's ear, one of the key signs of an ear infection. "Through social media, we can quickly provide parents with the information they need to determine whether or not they should make the trip to the doctor, saving them time and money," Kessinger said.

EarCheck has launched a Twitter page to provide parents valuable expert advice on ear infection diagnosis and care. Twitter is just one platform where this conversation is taking place. Some recent examples of such conversations include:

@EarCheck "I have 3 boys all have ear problems I feel so bad when they hurt so much!"

@EarCheck "I so need one of these. My daughter has chronic ear infections!!"
