Pediatric Emergency Medicine Conference Series: Management of Ingested Foreign Bodies in Children
Foreign body ingestions in children are some of the most challenging clinical scenarios facing pediatricians in the emergency department. Join us as Dr. Koutouby provides evidence-based and consensus-based guidelines emergency medicine physicians can utilize for esophageal and gastric foreign body ingestions. The application of these guidelines in the assessment of each patient to determine the indications and timing of endoscopy has the potential to reduce severe morbidity and mortality associated with these emergencies.
Pediatricians, Internists, Hospitalists, Pediatric Emergency Medicine Physicians, Emergency Medicine Physicians, Physician Assistants, ARNPs, Nurses, Pharmacists, Respiratory Therapists and related members of the hospital care team.
- Determine the indications and timing of endoscopy in esophageal and gastric foreign body ingestion.
