Any Tricks to Remove Something Stuck in My Throat?

Update Date: Source: Network

If something sticks to the throat, it can be removed by licking the upper jaw with the tongue, removing it by oneself, or seeking medical attention to clamp it out. First, roll the tongue down and try to lick the upper jaw to make some sounds. This aims to allow air flow to hit the object stuck in the throat, which usually will come down along with the airflow after a short while. Second, if the adhered position is not very deep and close to the upper jaw, it can be removed directly by hand. However, attention should be paid to the force, especially for children, as their oral mucosa is relatively delicate and excessive force may cause injury. Third, if these objects adhere to the throat for a long time, they may damage the mucosa, and it is difficult to take them out or swallow them through various methods. In this case, the patient can go to the hospital for a doctor to use a special gun-shaped tweezers or a curved forceps under the irradiation of an indirect laryngoscope to quickly remove the foreign body. If the situation is critical or even causes asphyxia, surgical treatment should be performed promptly. If the volume of the foreign body in the child's throat is small, the patient usually presents symptoms such as hoarseness, cough, hemoptysis, and wheezing. Small throat foreign bodies may stay in the laryngeal cavity due to laryngeal spasms; if the foreign body is sharp, the patient may experience pain, respiratory and swallowing difficulties, and may also cause throat bleeding or congestion, causing significant pain to the patient. Therefore, it is recommended to seek medical attention promptly. If the volume of the foreign body in the child's throat is large, it is likely to block the throat, and the most prominent manifestation of the patient at this time is difficulty breathing. Some patients may also experience severe coughing, cyanosis of the face, and even asphyxia, endangering their lives. In this case, parents must actively take their child to the hospital for rescue and remove the foreign body as soon as possible through surgical methods. However, before removing the foreign body, laryngeal endoscopy and lateral laryngeal X-ray radiography should be performed to determine the location of the foreign body and facilitate a smoother surgical procedure.
