Errors To Avoid In Suspected Foreign Body Cases

1. Do not reach for the foreign body with the fingers, lest the
foreign body be thereby pushed into the larynx, or the larynx be thus
traumatized.
2. Do not hold up the patient by the heels, lest a tracheally lodged
foreign body be dislodged and asphyxiate the patient by becoming
jammed in the glottis.
[143] 3. Do not fail to have a roentgenogram made, if possible,
whether the foreign body in question is of a kind dense to the ray or
not.
4. Do not fail to search endoscopically for a foreign body in all
cases of doubt.
5. Do not pass blindly an esophageal bougie, probang, or other
instrument.
6. Do not tell the patient he has no foreign body until after
roentgenray examination, physical examination, indirect examination,
and endoscopy have all proven negative.
