Endoscopy plays a major role in the management of foreign bodies and food impactions. Because of their frequent occurrence and potential for complications, it is important for the gastroenterology nurse and associate to gain an understanding of the incidence, diagnosis, and management of patients who present with ingested foreign bodies or food impaction. This article summarizes the clinical approach to patient: assessment, preparation for endoscopic procedure, preparation of endoscopic accessories, and follow-up care. Finally, an interesting case presentation highlights key components of caring for patients requiring endoscopic intervention.
