Abstract

  Foreign body ingestion and aspiration is a common cause of morbidity and mortality, usually occurs in children. A detailed history and physical examination with a high index of suspicion, despite negative imaging are required. Often, a diagnostic endoscopy may be required to definitively investigate the upper aerodigestive tract to rule out foreign body in equivocal findings. Non caustic oesophageal foreign bodies can be observed for a short period of time while Airway foreign bodies require immediate removal in the operating room. A team-based approach with coordination between the trained anaesthetist, surgeon, and operating room staff is required during this foreign body management.
