What should your expression be if you've swallowed a Lego head? Photo: Getty Images. But is it true that all things must pass or at least all Lego figurine he must pass? And if so, how long will it take? These are the key questions addressed by a study just published in the Journal of Paediatrics and Child Health. If you are saying, "but I don't usually eat Lego figurine he," you are probably not 6 months to 3 years old. Because back in those glory days, chances are you were trying to put all kinds of stuff in your mouth, according to a publication in the World Journal of Pediatricsaptly titled, "Foreign body ingestion: children like to put objects in their mouth.
But don't worry, kids aren't like Ponzi schemes. The money will likely get returned.
A study published in the BMJ in finding that most coins get pooped out after 3. We've finally answered the burning question - how long does it take for an ingested lego head to pass? THIS is dedication to paediatrics - but it was worth it to advance science and paediatric emergency care.
They specified that the subjects could not have had gastrointestinal surgery, problems swallowing objects, or an "aversion to searching through fecal matter. Six people eventually volunteered for the study. A higher SHAT score meant that the participant had more frequent and looser bowel movements, which could affect how fast the Lego head was you-know-what out of the person. Thus, each participant was given 2 SHATs. The "Don't Forget the Bubbles" team wondered when will I see you again?
After the Lego head was swallowed, the next step was to keep track of the subsequent bowel movements and keep looking for the Lego head. The authors wrote that the "search was conducted on an individual basis, and search technique was decided by the participant.
Why does Patient B have an "NA" for most of the entries? NA stands for "not available" but could mean "nada," because even after 2 weeks this person could not find the Lego head in his poop. Somewhere a Lego body remains without a head. For the other 5 participants, the FART score ranged from 1. In other words, it took an average of about 41 hours for the Lego head to reappear.
Of course, this study had its limitations. This was a very small study with only 6 people and therefore did not represent the wide range of bodies and bowel dynamics that may exist in the population. In other words, will these findings hold with all kinds of SHAT scores?
Plus, the participants were adults. And adults can be sort of different from 6 month to 3 year old kids, depending on the adult, of course. Moreover, the authors pointed out that "the population studied could not be blinded to the study outcomes as we felt it was unfair on the authors' partners or colleagues to search through their waste products. The authors added, "We also recognize that the Stool Hardness and Transit score is not a perfect surrogate for underlying bowel pattern, but the fact that participants can SHAT themselves without specialist knowledge makes it an inexpensive tool.
Of course, the study findings may not apply to other objects of different sizes and shapes, like action figures with arms, fidget spinners, and futons.
Larger and less evenly shaped objects may get caught in the throat, esophagus, or the different sphincters, crevices, and curves in the gastrointestinal tract. This study also should not encourage you to swallow Lego figurine he. This study does offer some reassurance to parents and anyone who needs a Lego head to complete a body that such a small toy part will be pooped out without complications, typically in 1 to 3 days.
The authors also added that "parents should be counselled not to search for the object in stools as it is difficult to find. I am a writer, journalist, professor, systems modeler, computational and digital health expert, avocado-eater, and entrepreneur, not always in that order.
