I Swallowed a Pear
Pt brought to ED by BLS presents with what appears to be a partial airway obstruction. Pt is unable to speak clearly, coughing profusely but O2 stats are fine. According to EMT pt “swallowed a pear”. Upon further questioning it sounds as if the pt is stating he swallowed a pear. When asked to clarify pt denies swallowing a pear and then makes a lewd gesture with his hands and tongue. As it turns out pt was performing cunnilingus and swallowed a “pubic hair” which is now caught in his throat.
