Discovering that something was wrong with the child, the parents immediately took him to the emergency department of the Kirov Regional Children’s Hospital. The doctors took an x-ray and saw a foreign object in the esophagus of dimensions that were difficult to determine.

Using endoscopic technologies, doctors removed a 14-centimeter plastic knife from the esophagus.

“Thanks to the fact that the parents sought help in time, the child had no complications. The next day he was discharged,” said Tatyana Zinovieva, an endoscopist at the Kirov Regional Children’s Clinical Hospital.

The case described is not at all exclusive. Young children often swallow small (and not so small) objects. Therefore, it is important for parents to be prepared for these types of incidents and behave correctly.

“If a foreign object enters a child’s body, it is necessary to follow some rules that will help avoid serious complications,” doctors note.

It is impossible for the child to adopt a horizontal position due to the risk of an object moving into the trachea. Absolutely do not drink or eat. Do not try to grab a stuck object with your hands or improvised objects: there is a risk of moving it into the respiratory tract. If a child swallows an object, she should immediately call an ambulance.

But, of course, it is better to avoid such dangerous situations.

To avoid dangers, it is important:

Strictly follow the age standards when purchasing toys, closely monitor young children when playing with toys, explain the dangers of swallowing and inhaling things, and do not encourage the child’s actions when putting something in his mouth.
