Xray reveals coin in anterior aspect of throat, and there is respiratory problems like shortness of breath. Examine the bilateral lung air entery and ask for oral intake whether child have difficulty in drinking liquids or swallowing food stuff. Coin likely to be in trachea or on the top of trachea. Adv for ENT specialist opinion and bronchoscopy

An endoscopy may be done if the food does not pass. A scope will be passed through the mouth and down the throat. Small tools will be passed down the tube to remove the food or push it down to the stomach. Your doctor will look for possible reasons the food was blocked
