The Skeptics Guide to Emergency Medicine
SGEM - February 2, 2017 - By Meghan Groth
Ref: Bodkin et al. Effectiveness of glucagon in relieving esophageal foreign body impaction: a multicenter study. AJEM June of 2016
"Clinical Question: Is glucagon safe and effective for the management of esophageal foreign body impaction?...
SGEM Bottom Line: Glucagon has a low success rate for EFBI, does not seem to offer much benefit over observation alone and is associated with adverse events like vomiting."
