While 39.8% of their mothers were between 26-30 years old and 46.2% of them were elementary school graduates. On the other hand, 38.7% of their fathers were between 26-31 years old and 43% of these families were primary school graduates. Average monthly incomes of 31.3% of their families ranged between 500-1000 Turkish liras. Most (81.7%) of the accidents occurred at home. It was determined that 89.2% of their mothers does not know anything about the first aid for FBA and 50.5% of the chidren exposed to FBA were taken to the hospital within the first 6 hours after FBA.

In addition, It was determined that 59.2% of the families were hiding the legumes and nuts inappropriately which are the major risk factors for FBA and 84.9% of the admission complaints were wheezings. It was also determined that in all patients, the foreign body was successfully removed with rigid bronchoscopy and 40.9% of the foreign body was hazelnut and peanut. Also, with the increase in the level of education, information of mothers about the measures to be taken before and applications taken after FSA increase too.
