Chantal McGrath: Ingested foreign bodies at DFTB17


This talk was recorded live on the first day at DFTB17 in Brisbane.

Chantal McGrath is an emergency doctor working in regional Australia.  She responded to our call for help with amazingly short notice and produced this fantastic talk on the dangers of ingested foreign bodies. Kids have an uncanny knack for putting things where they shouldn’t. Getting stuff out of noses and ears is (relatively) easy, but if they have swallowed something, they shouldn’t have.

You can listen to this talk as you walk to work on any device that supports podcasts.

One of our resident doodlers, Grace Leo, has taken some notes so you don’t have to.
