PMID:  19966708     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
The use of a blind finger sweep to clear the upper airway can cause subsequent problems when used in paediatric practice. This case report adds support to recommendations that this procedure should not be used, while simultaneously describing a complication the authors have not come across in the published literature.
