How to fix a popcorn core stuck in your ear?

September 30, 2020 by Frank Maiden


Here are some easy ways to fix popcorn heart stuck in your ear.

When the object is in the ear or nose:
  1. Do not try to delete the object. This can push the object further and make it difficult to remove.
  2. Do not use a cotton swab to remove the object. You are just going to push the object further.
  3. Do not pour anything into your ear or nose.

My resident and I are discussing various methods to try and get rid of this, including ear curette, tissue glue, suction, and calling an ear, nose, and throat specialist. The ear curette does not move, the grains are smooth, difficult to grasp, and can cause injury with swelling or bleeding. We quickly ruled out irrigation because the core could swell more. Another method considered is to put a drop of cloth glue on a cotton swab to attachAttach it to the foreign body (FB) for extraction. However, we were a little sluggish about this as we were worried about sticking the FB to the ear canal and suffering the ENT anger.

How do you get something out of a child's ear?

Tilt your head to the affected side to try to remove the object. Try oiling the insect. If the foreign object is an insect, tilt the person's head so that the ear with the insect is facing up. Try swimming insect by pouring mineral oil, olive oil, or baby oil into your ear.

My resident has prepared a Frazier 12 Fr suction catheter that is suitable for atrial FB like insects. Fraser's suction worked well enough to remove one of the nuclei from the ear with little conviction. The other ear of the FB did not lend itself to Frazier, perhaps because the hard end and smaller diameter did not close these rounded FBs tightly.

Tip: Modified 14 Fr Suction Catheter

After unsuccessful attempts to insert a Fraser rigid suction catheter with a second core, we used a short, soft-tipped suction tube that was almost the same diameter as the foreign body. The theory was that it could make the suction seal better. Thus, the standard 14 Fr suction catheter was interrupted and worked flawlessly.

We preferred this because a flexible catheter is less likely to cause injury if the patient happens to beaino will move and provide better suction. We think it will work just as well on the nose of FB. We find the vacuum cleaner works best on objects with smooth, rounded, or flat surfaces.

Twitter Review

popcorn kernel lodged in ear

After posting this tip on Twitter, we received tweets that a mini-suction cup made from a cut butterfly needle is suitable for small beads. We're not sure if this will work for large FBs like popcorn cores, but it looks like there are multiple catheter diameters to try and find the best fit!

Regarding our concern about using tissue glue on a cotton swab that accidentally adheres FB to the ear canal, we learned that an otoscope mirror can be used to protect the ear canal from the glue.

Other Tips For Removing Foreign Objects From Your Ear

We have also described the use of a pediatric video laryngoscope tip to provide excellent illumination, exposure, removal, and magnification to visualize the aural FBs to be removed. In this caseI mean, it wouldn't have helped with a big FB ear.

How long can a foreign object stay in your ear?

We found that the smallest inert inert bodies can be observed for 1 to 2 weeks without increasing complications.

  4. Kernel Density Estimation Reference

    2.2 Estimation of kernel density using (2.6) we give all points \ (X_1, \ ldots, X_n \) equal weight. The generalization of (2.6) to unequal weights is now obvious: replace \ (K \) with an arbitrary density! Then \ (K \) is called the kernel. As is commonly believed, we regard \ (K \) as a symmetric unimodal density at zero. This generalization provides the definition of a nuclear density estimate (kde) 18 : Useful to get (2.7) with a normal kernel. If so, then \ (K_h (x-X_i) = \ phi_h (x-X_i) \), and the kernel is ...
