Introduction: Child’s community includes a number of places- playgrounds, gardens, fields, ponds, rivers or waste dumps, but their relative importance depends on a child's way of life. Accidents are a major cause of morbidity and mortality in children. An accident can be defined as an unexpected, unplanned occurrence of an event which usually produced unintended injury, death or property damage. Injuries cause almost 40% deaths among 1-4 year old children and three times more deaths than the next leading cause, Accidental death in children particularly during playing, while flying kites, fall from the terrace, injury from sharp objects, injury from fire crackers particularly during the festive seasons, improper use of electrically operated toys, sharp toys, scissors, knives, blades are not uncommon (1-5). Children aged 1-3 years are particularly at risk for foreign body aspiration because of their increasing independence, lessening of close parental supervision as they become older, increasing activity, curiosity because of hand – mouth interactions. Often foods such as grapes and smaller objects such as peanuts are easily aspirated into the bronchi by children, Foreign body aspiration (FBA) is a respiratory emergency and must be managed immediately or there can be a fatal outcome. Although there has been a decrease in complications associated with airway aspirations because of the significant advances in airway management and endoscopic.
To assess the knowledge of mothers of toddlers regarding foreign body aspiration.
To evaluate the effectiveness of planned teaching programme on knowledge regarding foreign body aspiration among mothers of toddler.
To find the association between post-test level of knowledge on foreign body aspiration and the selected demographic variables.
Method: The study is designed to assess the effectiveness of planned teaching programme on foreign body aspiration. Data will be collected from the mothers of toddlers in selected urban community at Jaipur. The research design adopted for the study in pre experimental design one group pre test post test only design.
Result: The study will enhance the knowledge of foreign body aspiration among the mothers of toddler and prevent further complications. The overall post-test mean knowledge score was 70.76%
