RODRIGUEZ, Hugo et al. Recommendations for the prevention of organic foreign bodies aspiration. Arch. argent. pediatr. [online]. 2017, vol.115, n.5, pp.512-516. ISSN 0325-0075.

Foreign body aspiration remains a common and potentially serious pediatric problem. Most aspirated foreign bodies are food. The education of parents and caregivers about choking hazards and how to avoid them is critical to reduce the incidence of these events. The pediatricians play a key role in promoting injury prevention. We indicate the main characteristics of hazardous food and we present recommendations on age-appropriate meals, adequate forms of food preparation and behavioral rules at mealtimes in order to reduce food choking.
