This is how loose objects can be dangerous if have little children at home.. from coins to safety pins.
Doctors in Mumbai saved a little girl who swallowed a safety pin that got stuck in her esophagus (food pipe).
The girl’s mother said she realised something was wrong after the infant began crying profusely and refused to drink water or milk. The woman took her daughter to the family paediatrician, who saw the pin on a chest X-ray.
She then took the infant to Wockhardt Hospital, where Images showed that the open safety pin was embedded in the pharynx wall, but had not pierced it. Doctors gave the child anaesthesia and attempted to remove the pin using forceps.
After an unsuccessful attempt, they decided upon endoscopic removal of the pin. “Using specialised rat tooth forceps, we caught one end of the pin and released it into the girl’s stomach, said Dr Lalit Verma, paediatric gastroenterologist. After an hour-long operation, the pin was retrieved without any injury or trauma to the infant’s upper gastrointestinal tract.
The girl was kept under observation for 24 hours and the sent home, he said.
Had the safety pin not been removed in time, the infant could have died of internal bleeding, said Dr Verma.
Stay vigilant and don’t keep any loose objects which the child is likely to swallow.
