Children (and even some adults) put things in their mouths that don’t belong there—and sometimes they wind up being swallowed or inhaled. That risk may be especially high as holiday gifts are explored and batteries fall into small hands. The next free webinar offered by JUCM will feature Hansel Otero, MD, director of international pediatric radiology education and outreach at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia sharing real-life cases (and accompanying x-rays) of patients with foreign bodies due to accidental ingestion, trauma, or inadvertent placement—with focus on identifying and removing the objects. Foreign Bodies Presenting to the Urgent Care is scheduled to take place on Tuesday, January 14, from 2 to 3 pm, Eastern. For more information or to register, click here.
