Category: FOREIGN BODIES IN THE AIR AND FOOD PASSAGES
Source: A Manual Of Peroral Endoscopy And Laryngeal Surgery

1. Initial laryngeal spasm is almost invariably present with foreign
bodies of organic nature, such as nut kernels, peas, beans, maize,
etc.
2. A diffuse purulent laryngo-tracheo-bronchitis develops within 24
hours in children under 2 years.
3. Fever, toxemia, cyanosis, dyspnea and paroxysmal cough are
promptly shown.
4. The child is unable to cough up the thick mucilaginous pus
through the swollen larynx and may drown in its own secretions
unless the offender be removed.
5. Drowned lung, that is to say natural passages idled with pus
and secretions, rapidly forms.
6. Pulmonary abscess develops sooner than in case of mineral foreign
bodies.
7. The older the child the less severe the reaction.
