ABSTRACT
Airway foreign body removal is challenging. It is a time-limited and life-saving procedure. We report a successful case of life-saving by pushing a foreign body further into the distal airway to block one lung and save the other lung. A 12-month-old boy presented in the emergency department with choking. Upon arrival, his mental status was alert. However, respiratory failure rapidly progressed and arrest occurred. We tried to push the foreign body distal by pushing the endotracheal tube as deep as possible and inserting stylet further. With this procedure, the patient was successfully resuscitated and bronchoscopic foreign body removal was performed. The patient was discharged without respiratory or neurologic sequelae. We reported this successful life-threatening subglottic airway foreign body removal case in an infant.
