Abstract: Many anaesthetic problems and hazards exist in children with inhaled foreign bodies. Careful, stepwise and detailed consideration of clinical history, examination and investigations cannot be over-emphasised. Special consideration has to be given to the fragile paediatric cardiopulmonary status especially in the presence of airway foreign body. The small paediatric airway is frequently shared for anaesthesia and endoscopy. Complete cooperation and good communication between the endoscopist and the anaesthetist is paramount in achieving an optimal outcome.
