Paediatric nasal foreign bodies is a common clinical problem effecting children mainly 2-8 years of age. Often treated in A & E Departments, with little or no specialised ENT experience or equipment. We present a simple, parent administered technique for removal of paediatric nasal foreign bodies. The technique is safe and effective and is easy to perform on nervous and frightened children.
