Dear parents! Draw Your attention to the acute pathology of children’s age – foreign bodies of the esophagus and the upper respiratory tract.
The ingress of foreign bodies in the esophagus or upper airway mostly occurs in children under the age of 5, most children up to 2 years. This unpleasant statistic is associated with features of mental development of children who are all pulling mouth, as well as with anatomical and physiological characteristics of the child (the structure of the respiratory system, jaw, dentition, etc.). As a result, the esophagus and the upper respiratory tract of the child can get a variety of subjects: miscellaneous grains, seeds and their rind, nuts, beans, small beads, buttons and other small items. Even among children already of school age found small toys (details from «kinder surprise», soldiers, etc), the caps from pens, nails, staples, etc., depending on the size of the foreign object, or objects (and it happens), depth and site of penetration, the child develops certain symptoms. It should be noted that the younger the child, the harder it is to diagnose the cause of the disease and the less optimistic the forecast.
Draw Your attention to a dangerous toy that is presented as a toy that calms the nerves, relieves stress, develops imagination and imagination, improves fine motor skills. It is called neokub — constructor, normally consists of identical spherical magnets (alloy of neodymium, iron and boron). Wrong with these bulbs is that once they enter the body, they are not displayed as other swallowed foreign bodies, and connecting with each other, they pull together the walls of the intestine, forming obstruction, and forced holes in the walls of the intestine. The body is all individual, some children this happens for weeks, one for 6 hours. The symptoms at the same time — the banal food poisoning, ultrasound these beads can not find, only an x-ray. I think no need to explain that every sickness to do an x-ray is insane.
Dear parents, any disease is easier to prevent than to cure. To prevent the ingress of foreign bodies in the organism of the child needs all small objects to hide out of reach of children. Do not give to children without teeth or with 1, 2 tooth solid foods — carrots, pieces of meat, beans or other food that requires chewing. By participating in the process of understanding the world Your child, watch for objects and toys, which the child pulls in a mouth, avoid games with dangerous objects.
Health to You and Your children!
Sincerely, pediatricians, surgery and intensive care Uzda CRH.
