Foreign bodies can accidentally enter into ear, nose or throat, especially in children, but they can also affect adults. Common examples include small toys, beads, food particles, insects, or other objects that can get lodged in the ear canal, nasal passages, or throat.

The process of foreign body removal typically involves the following steps:

  • Examination:The ENT doctor will first conduct a thorough examination to locate and identify the foreign body's position and nature. They may use instruments like otoscopes or nasal endoscopes to visualize the area more clearly.

Removal Techniques : The specific method used for removal will depend on the location and type of foreign body. Common techniques include:

  • Ear : Using specialized instruments, the ENT doctor may gently grasp the object and extract it from the ear canal. In some cases, they may use water irrigation to flush out the object.
  • Nose : For objects lodged in the nasal passages, the ENT doctor may use forceps or suction devices to carefully remove the foreign body
  • Throat :If a foreign object is stuck in the throat, the doctor may use instruments like laryngoscopes to visualize and extract the object.
  • Anesthesia :In some cases, the doctor may need to use local anesthesia to numb the area before removal, especially if the process may cause discomfort.
  • Aftercare : After the successful removal of the foreign body, the doctor will likely provide instructions for care and monitor the patient for any potential complications.

It's crucial to seek professional medical help if you suspect or know that a foreign object has become stuck in the ear, nose, or throat. Attempting to remove the object at home can be risky and may lead to further complications or injury.

Remember, if you or someone else has a foreign body lodged in the ear, nose, or throat, seek immediate medical attention from an ENT specialist for safe and effective removal.
