A history of choking is usually obtained. Common clinical signs include coughing, stridor, wheezing and sternal retraction. Rapid recognition and treatment are essential. Radiography If the child is able to cooperate then a frontal chest X-ray (CXR) should be obtained following a rapid forced expiration. Air trapping on the affected side (due to obstruction of the airway) is then more obvious. Fluoroscopy is an excellent way of observing whether there is unilateral air trapping. Possible findings on the CXR: ■■ Obstructive atelectasis—areas of collapse/consolidation.

Vary the windowing if necessary. Step 2 Look for three abnormalities: ■■ Linear fracture. A lucent (black) line. ■■ Depressed fracture. A dense white area or parallel white lines due to overlapping or rotated bone fragments. ■■ Fluid level in the sphenoid sinus. This will be visible on the lateral film since the radiograph is taken using a horizontal X-ray beam. A fluid level indicates haemorrhage or cerebrospinal fluid within the sinus and suggests that a base of skull fracture is present. In practice a sphenoid sinus fluid level is a rare finding, but it may be the only abnormality on the radiograph.
