My 3-year-old son stuck a raisin up his nose. My wife and I are physician assistants. We went to the pediatric ED after attempting multiple positive pressure techniques without success. The pediatrician ED doctor was unable to visualize with a nasal speculum and was failed to pass an NG tube. The ENT who was consulted wants to go under general anesthesia to remove it tomorrow morning. My son is entirely asymptomatic, can we wait till we get back to our home after two days?
It is better to remove it as early as possible. It is an organic material trapped in a place full of bacteria so rhinosinusitis can occur quickly with the formation of pus. I do not advise you to wait to remove it as soon as possible. Also, you have to be afraid of his Inhalation while sleeping. Remove it under general anesthesia as the ENT specialist said.
