What are we putting in our ears? A consumer product analysis of aural foreign bodies
Wed, 01 Oct 2014 00:00:00 +0100 | The Laryngoscope
ConclusionsAural foreign bodies considerably affect health care expenditures; over 250,000 ED visits over a 5‐year span were noted.

Although children were most commonly affected, these findings highlight the need for sustained education and prevention strategies among all age groups.
