Multiple Foreign bodies in the GI tract (8 of 12)
Please sign in to rate material
Children account for about 80% of cases of ingested
foreign bodies and tend to ingest coins, toys, and other
small objects left within their reach. Adult patients at
highest risk include psychiatric patients, prisoners, those
with impaired mental status or intoxication, those with
underlying esophageal abnormalities such as strictures,
and denture wearers, who have reduced sensation of the
palate. Adults most commonly have trouble with boluses of
meat and animal bones, although psychiatric patients and
prisoners may intentionally ingest unusual objects such as
razor blades or open safety pins.
