I remember that during my childhood, my mother rarely prepared fish because she was always afraid that we might have an accident with a thorn. When he decided to prepare it because he knew the importance of eating fish, he examined every portion he gave us taking care to the maximum that there was no thorn.
This is a fear that all moms have because we have all heard of someone who has had a problem with a fishbone pierced in the throat. We know that it generates concern and in case it has already happened to you, you know that it is a very unpleasant moment.
We must all be alert, alert and prepared to face such a situation in which it is necessary to remain calm and act quickly.
So that you have in mind the possible solutions that can help you get out of this complex situation, keep in mind these useful tips.
This is really the first resource we should use. Coughing hard, something almost instinctive that is part of a natural reaction to protect us from factors that irritate or upset the throat. If the spine is not too embedded it can be expelled at each cough.
– Water and salt:

Take a large piece of banana in your mouth and keep it there for a minute until it deserves it from the saliva. Then, swallow this banana bolus and then take a large sip of water. It is likely that the weight of this fruit will drag the stuck spine.
– Wet bread:
