A foreign object is something external that
has entered or been inserted into the body or an orifice. Children
are likely to get foreign objects lodged in their body through
their play with small toys, such as marbles and crayon tips. This
teaching module is about treatment for foreign objects that might
have got caught in the eye, ear or nose.
This first aid lesson teaches students:
The lesson plan contains suggested individual
and group activities to help students learn the different
treatments for objects in the eye, ear and nose. The activities
also emphasise the need for clear communication and reassurance,
and explain when to take the casualty to hospital.
