The nine-month old child was playing at home when he came across a Vicks bottle and he took it in his hands and swallowed it. When the parents noticed that the child wasn’t moving they immediately rushed him to the hospitals.

From Igatpuri, they rushed to admit him in Nashik Civic Hospital. The parents managed to reach the hospital as soon as they could to get their child to the hospital in the nick of time.

Dr Sanjay Gangurde, Head of ENT department and a team of doctors began to operate on the child. They performed a laryngoscopy (an endoscopy of the larynx) to extract the object.

While speaking to My Medical Mantra, Dr Gangurde, said, “The child swallowed the Vicks bottle while playing, it was a small flat box. An endoscopic surgery was performed to remove it. The child was administered anaesthesia. The child was in a very serious condition. He is still admitted in the ICU. The child is out of danger and its kept under observation.”

He added, “His parents left from Igatpur at 2 pm and reached the hospital by 4:30 pm, he was urgently taken to the operation theatre. The surgery took 45 minutes to complete. The bottle was completely stuck in the throat. The child was unable to cry, he was having difficulty breathing. While removing the bottle, his throat got a few scratches. I have operated on 15 to 20 cases of children getting coins stuck in their throat. But this is the first case I have across where a child swallowed a Vicks bottle.”
