You stuck what where?!

Dr. George "Bud" Higgins shares with us some tricks of the trade regarding evaluating and removing intra-nasal foreign bodies. He discusses some well known maneuvers ("parent's kiss," passing a foley catheter, bayonette forceps) and a more novel approach using intranasal positive pressure gas flow.
