Abstract

Choking happens when a child's airway is blocked by a foreign substance that impairs oxygenation and ventilation. It is one of the most frightening scenarios a parent can imagine. It happens suddenly and can have the direst of consequences. Small objects, such as food and candy, are the usual offenders. Child-related risk factors are largely developmental due to physical and cognitive immaturity. This article describes the magnitude of the problem, delineates some of the risks, and outlines prevention. [Pediatr Ann. 2019;48(9):e338-e340.].
