Abstract

Positive-pressure technique for the removal of nasal foreign bodies in children is an effective alternative to restraints and instrumentation, yet it is underused. A retrospective chart review in a community hospital over a 2-year period yielded 64 cases of pediatric nasal foreign bodies. Eight cases are presented in which the positive-pressure technique was used.
