Abstract

The nose is perhaps the most common site for the insertion of foreign bodies by children. Removal is essential. We report the successful use of the oral Ambu-bag insufflation technique to remove unilateral nasal foreign bodies in three children. Conscious sedation was not required. There were no complications.
