Aspiration (larynx, trachea and bronchi) and ingestion (hypopharynx, esophagus, stomach and intestines) of foreign bodies are relatively frequent suspected diagnoses in pediatric acute care. They are associated with a relevant preclinical and clinical morbidity and mortality. Those mostly affected are children between the ages of 6 months and 4 years. The aim of the S2k guidelines of the Association of the Scientific Medical Societies in Germany (AWMF) presented here is a structured description of the essential organizational, diagnostic and therapeutic aspects for the safe interdisciplinary treatment of children after aspiration and ingestion of foreign bodies. The following three aspects are essential: remember the patient history and reevaluation, when in doubt perform endoscopy and agree on an interdisciplinary approach.
