  • Aspiration of foreign material into the lungs can represent a medical emergency requiring timely interventions to assure a favorable outcome. Establishment of a patent airway and maintenance of adequate oxygenation are the initial requirements for successful treatment of all types of aspiration emergencies. The nature of the aspirated material dictates further interventions and potential outcome.
