Management of Ingested Button Batteries

Wed, 30 May 2018

Dear Colleagues

Can I urge you to read the attached document circulated on behalf of The Australian & New Zealand Society of Paediatric Otolaryngology. It contains important practical information on the management of this condition.

I will be collecting the NZ button battery data for the prospective study Hannah is doing (as the questionnaire link on the letter is specifically for Australian patients). If anyone is/has been involved with any patients who have ingested a button battery (from January this year onwards) can they please contact me?

Many thanks
