http://prevention.euroburn.org/ Very few parents fully understand that a lithium button battery can kill a child in a matter of a few hours and that it is not through choking but through the chemical burning of caustic soda the battery produces when reacting to saliva and other bodily fluids. If swallowed, the batteries can cause severe internal bleeding which is very difficult to treat. ______ A timed experiment to show the speed and intensity of the battery reaction to flesh. The video show the results on a piece of pork which is the closest meat to human flesh. Method • A lithium cell battery was placed on top of a small piece of pork. • Saliva was introduced to the top of the pork to mimic natural body fluids. • The pork was then wrapped closely in cling-film to minimise air flow. - Prevention – European Burns Association

CINCINNATI (Liz Bonis) - The death of a toddler in Oklahoma leads to a nationwide campaign to raise awareness of a hidden danger. It's one that might be in your home. Lithium batteries are so tiny and shiny so as people might imagine, kids are drawn to them. They are in many items in the home from watches to hearing aids to electronics. So safety experts from Cincinnati Children's Hospital and new mom's took some time to share how something so small can lead to something really big to a baby. Little Annabelle Elizabeth is 7-months-old. What does she try and put in her mouth right now? Her mom, Allison Burke, said, "Everything! Everything she can find goes, woohph, right there." Her mom said Annabelle likes to chew on colorful, shiny things which generally includes everything from toys to toy remotes. But many of those remotes have tiny batteries. They are so little people often call them button batteries. If they are swallowed injury prevention specialist Dawne Gardner said they can sometimes can be seen naturally pass through the digestive tract. "But if it gets stuck, and it goes undetected, and it can be there less than two hours it starts to burn and the burning continues and the longer that it's in there the more serious it gets," said Gardner. Gardner showed Local 12 News with a hot dog demonstration how that happens. In just a few hours when the hot dog is opened the burn was significant. That was exactly what happened to little Emmett a few years ago who luckily recovered. Karla Rauch, Emmett's mom, said, "He underwent five reconstructions of his esophagus and eventually a trach was placed a year later." Little Brianna, a toddler from Oklahoma, was not so lucky. As the GoFundMe page for her funeral expenses shows, she lost her life according to her parents, shortly after Christmas due to complications from ingesting a button battery. Both Brianna's family and Emmetts are now trying to raise awareness of the tiny danger. The hope is that when tiny babies, such as Annabelle, are around items that contain button batteries are far from reach. Now the button batteries are in a lot of items; singing greeting cards, remotes, key faabs. Older adult can swallow them thinking they are pills so it can be a danger to them too.

http://tinyurl.com/onr6x9c The day after Christmas, 2-year-old Brianna Florer was laughing and jumping around with her older brother and two sisters opening presents at her grandparents’ home. The next day the precocious blond-haired toddler was dead. An X-ray of her tiny body showed the “killer” was a shiny, silver button battery. “On Saturday she was fine,” maternal grandfather Kent Vice said. “It was a perfect Christmas.” Brianna had not been feeling well for a couple of days, throwing up and running a low-grade fever, he said. Late Sunday, Brianna threw up blood, and her body turned a blue color. Her parents, Brian and Stephanie Florer, who live in rural Delaware County, called the Jay ambulance, which met them at a convenience store to check Brianna’s condition. “She threw up again,” Vice said. “It was a massive amount of blood, and they rushed her to the Grove hospital.” The Grove physicians quickly diagnosed Brianna’s problem, and she was taken by ambulance to St. Francis Hospital in Tulsa, where she was rushed into surgery, he said. Bad weather had grounded all medical transportation by helicopter, Vice said. “They operated on her for 2½ hours, but they couldn’t stop the bleeding,” Vice said. “They believed the battery ate through to her carotid artery by way of her esophagus.” “One minute she is perfect, and the next minute she is dead,” Vice said. “We had no idea when she swallowed it (the battery).” The family learned Brianna probably swallowed the battery within six days of her death. Vice said he wants to do something about button batteries. “I want to keep these things out of houses,” he said. “They are dangerous.” A Go Fund Me account has been set up to help the family with funeral expenses. Eddie Johnson with the state medical examiner’s office said the child’s autopsy is pending, and it would be two to four months before an official cause and manner of death is known. There were 53 reported cases in Oklahoma of children and adults swallowing a button or disk battery this year, said Randy Badillo, Oklahoma Poison Control Center senior specialist. “No fatalities have been reported to us,” he said. Normally the battery passes through the digestive system, he said. “But, if the battery lodges in the esophagus or digestive tract, it can open and release an alkaline substance that can cause corrosive or burning injuries,” Badillo said. From 2005 to 2014, there were 11,940 battery-swallowing incidents involving children under the age of 6 nationally, according to the National Capitol Poison Center in Washington, D.C. Of those cases, 15 children died, and another 101 suffered major medical problems. “These devastating outcomes occur in small children when batteries get stuck in the esophagus,” said Dr. Toby Litovitz, center physician. When a lithium button battery lodges in a child’s esophagus, it causes an electrical current to go through the tissue, she said. “The electrical current is causing more damage because it is splitting the water surrounding the button battery and forming hydroxide, which is an ingredient in lye. Imagine dropping little tiny drops of lye in one place in the esophagus,” Litovitz said. The lye substance perforates the esophagus and goes into whatever tissue is nearby — it can be the aorta or the trachea. Serious complications also have been seen when small batteries are placed in the nose or ear — another situation where urgent removal is critical, Litovitz said. “The important thing to remember is, these batteries are everywhere.” Vice was close to his granddaughter. He handled caretaking duties for Brianna when she was an infant for three weeks after her parents returned to work. “She never — not one time — had a bad day,” Vice said, his voice cracking with emotion. “She was always happy and laughing. “I took care of her — she was just an angel.” ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ Music: Last Kiss Goodnight by Kevin MacLeod is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution license (https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0/) Source: http://incompetech.com/music/royalty-free/index.html?isrc=USUAN1100611 Artist: http://incompetech.com/

YOUR DESCRIPTION HAS REACHED THE LIMIT OF CHARACTERS ALLOWED AND WAS CUT. DAYTON-- Doctors at Dayton Children's Hospital are warning this holiday season of the dangers of "button batteries" that are commonly found in toys. The batteries are small enough to swallow, and can cause serious corrosive damage if your child swallows one. "Everything has a watch battery these days, even those little toys that you get from fast food restaurants," said Dr. Ravi Elluru, who specializes in ear, nose, and throat ailments at Dayton Children's Hospital. "He likes to be a joker and thinks its funny but this time it wasn't so funny," said Rebecca Roberts about her 4-year-old grandson, Hunter. Hunter became a patient at Dayton Children's after he found a button battery in a drawer at his grandmother's house and swallowed it. "He came into the living room and he says ma-maw, I swallowed a battery! I'm like what!?" Roberts recalled. After Roberts rushed the boy to Dayton Children's Hospital, doctors had to act fast to get the battery out because it had lodged in his throat. "If they get lodged and in contact with the lining of the food pipe-- the esophagus-- then it starts a corrosive action," said Dr. Elluru. Dayton Children's Hospital produced a video to demonstrate how quickly the battery could damage the lining of the esophagus, using a piece of deli meat to replicate human tissue. After the test, the battery had visibly eaten away at the deli meat, on both sides, and it took only two hours. "It is literally corroding and burning away the lining of the esophagus where the battery is placed," said Dr. Elluru about the test. "Infections can then spread very rapidly from that food pipe into your chest and that can be a life threatening situation," he warned. Dr. Elluru suggests that as parents start wrapping presents for the holidays, pay extra attention to what toys the batteries may be located in, especially toys that talk or light up. After the incident with Hunter, Rebecca Roberts said she shopped extra carefully for her curious Grandson for the upcoming holiday. "I don't think I got anything that uses batteries," she said, "I'm hoping I didn't, but you know some toys you get them home and they have batteries in them." Dr. Elluru added that other than taking precaution as to what toys and household items the batteries may be located in, pay attention if your child starts having breathing problems, or refuses to eat or drink, as those may be signs that they swallowed a button battery or other foreign object. __________________________________________________________ PREVIOUS: DAYTON -- With the Christmas season upon us, Dayton Children's Hospital is warning of an increasing danger: Children swallowing small batteries. The hospital says the threat is there with remote controls, toys, books with music or sound, greeting cards, watches, flameless candles, key fobs, scales, thermometers, hearing aids, diabetic testing tools or other medical devices. And time is the enemy, Dayton Children's Hospital says. Major damage can be done in as little as two hours and the damage can take years and several surgeries to repair. Even then, sometimes a return to normal is not possible. It looks like a little bomb has gone off in a childs throat, says Ravi Elluru, MD, PhD, advanced pediatric airway, ear, nose and throat doctor at Dayton Childrens. You can see the indentation in the esophagus where the battery was and a lot of blackened scar tissue around it. Dr. Elluru has had to reconstruct the airway of a child who swallowed a button battery. %0

(KYTX) September 18, 2012 By Courtney Friedman TYLER - Ever paid attention to how small those circular batteries are that come in your watches, flashlights, and even musical greeting cards? They're about the size of a dime, and more kids than ever are suffering injuries from swallowing them. A recent study from Safe Kids USA says from 1997 to 2010, 40,000 kids have ended up in emergency rooms from swallowing one of these. That's why the battery companies are stepping up to make packaging harder for kids to open, and warnings easier for parents to see. Stephanie East is a Tyler mother of five kids, all under six years old! "I definitely have those young ones that like to put things in their mouth!" East says. That's why she's shocked to hear how many thousands of kids wind up in the emergency room from swallowing small lithium batteries - the exact kind she has in her house! The small circular lithium batteries can be found in so many items you keep in your home, like the remote control on your car keys, or your watch. East says, "We have probably five, for watches, we have one for our scale, for our bathroom scale." These batteries may be common in homes these days, but when swallowed, they pose serious risks. "It gets in the throat, it's about that size, so it closes over the back of the throat," says Direct Care Tyler Family Nurse Practitioner Lisa Blackwelder. However, she says they don't just pose a choking hazard. "The stomach has lots of acid it breaks down the chemicals on the battery, further breaking down and then you have this acid that can just burn a hole in the stomach or the lower intestines so very dangerous," Blackwelder says. That's why both she and East are glad battery companies are stepping up. "I know mine you just kind of pop the back like a pill pack and it's out! I've popped it and it's gone flying before, so it's better to have a little safer packaging," Blackwelder says. "I do believe parents need to be aware of this and to take precautions," says East. Blackwelder says it's nice to have that safer packaging but once the batteries are out of their case, you need to store them out of reach. She suggests a locked cabinet, or shelf that is high up where children can't reach. Safe Kids USA also suggests putting strong tape across the items these batteries power, so kids can't take them out of things like remote controls. If your child does swallow a battery like this, take them immediately to the emergency room because long lasting damage from battery acid can happen within two hours.

We count down the Top 5 REAL dangers of cell phone use that can actually kill you! It sounds like clickbait, but NO- your cell phone is actually MUCH more dangerous that you might think! A great article that links to 44 different studies that show a relationship between cellphone usage and cancerous brain tumors http://www.greenmedinfo.com/blog/44-reasons-cell-phones-can-cause-cancer The most recent cell phone / cancer study from the US Department of Health and Human Services https://ntp.niehs.nih.gov/results/areas/cellphones/ Bacteria A London University study found that the average cell phone carries 18x more bacteria than a toilet handle. These bacteria can cause anything from minor problems like colds and flus-to more severe skin infections from staphylococcus and streptococcus bacteria. This includes the very dangerous MRSA infection. MRSA has been dubbed the "super bug" because it is resistant to most conventional antibiotic treatments. And yes, you can catch MRSA just from talking on your phone. Punctured Batteries When most people drop their cell phone, they worry about breaking their screen. However, the true hazard in any cell phone drop or impact is damaging the dangerous lithium ion battery inside. If a cell phone battery is punctured, it can cause a chemical reaction so intense that the resulting fire can actually burn through metal. Talking While Driving Now, at first this one seems obvious. Of course no one should talk on a cell phone while driving. However, most of us assume that it's completely safe to drive and talk as long as a hands-free device is used. After all, both hands are on the wheel and our attention is focused on the road. Well, unfortunately it turn out that even talking using a hands free device is still very dangerous. A study by the University of Sussex found that drivers talking on a cell phone using a hands free device could be just as distracted, and just as dangerous, as if they were holding the phone up to their ear. Researchers found that when people talk on the phone, they tend to let their imaginations run wild, sometimes thinking about the topic being discussed or even imagining the expression on the face of the person they're talking to. The University study concluded that there simply IS no way to safely talk on a cell phone while driving, not even hands free. Random Explosions & Fires Now, even if your cell phone is not dropped or damaged in any way, there is still a risk that the battery could just randomly explode or burst into flames. It all comes down to the fact that cell phones contain lithium ion batteries, and these batteries are just dangerous by nature. Lithium ion batteries can short circuit easily and contain dangerous and highly flammable chemicals. Despite what you might have heard, the phenomenon of cell phones exploding or bursting into flames doesn't just occur in cheap cell phones either. Cases have been documented involving some of the most expensive phones on the market. In fact, the Samsung Note 7 actually had to be recalled after a shocking number of spontaneous fires. Brain Tumors To put it simply, when you're using a cell phone to talk, you are holding a high-powered microwave transmitter against your head. Obviously, that doesn't sound like a great idea. But the connection between cell phones and brain tumors is a hotly debated issue. Cell phones produce non-ionizing radiation, which is radiation that does not affect cells on an atomic level. So critics argue that cell radiation therefore cannot possibly cause Cancer. However recent evidence shows otherwise. Recent scientific studies have found a clear connection between long term cell phone use and an increase in dangerous glioma brain tumors. The Interphone study, one of the biggest cell phone studies of all time found that people who had used cell phones for over 10 years were almost twice as likely to have glioma brain tumors. The study also found that tumors were more likely to occur on the side of the head most used for calling. The interesting thing about this is that the Interphone study was actually funded by the mobile phone industry in an attempt to prove that cell phones did NOT cause brain tumors. Numerous recent studies have shown even more conclusive proof that cell phone radiation increases the risk of cancerous tumors. A more recent Swedish study shows that people who used cell phones more than 25 years were 3 times as likely to develop brain tumors. Furthermore, multiple studies have shown an increase in cancerous tumors near where people hold their cell phone. And a study by the US Department of Health and Human Services has conclusively proven that the type of radiation used by cellphones causes cancer in lab rats. The World Health Organization has declared cell phone radiation a type 2B cancer risk.

http://www.cincinnatichildrens.org On Emmett Rauch's first birthday, he swallowed something dangerous that's in nearly every home in the country: a button battery from a remote control to his family's DVD player. His parents didn't know what had happened. They grew concerned when he came down with flu-like symptoms that didn't improve. Finally, an X-ray revealed what he had swallowed. It was as poisonous as swallowing drain cleaner. It tore holes in his esophagus and trachea and did severe lung damage. Doctors in Phoenix referred the Arizona family to Cincinnati Children's for advanced care at the Aerodigestive Center, which studies and treats critical airway, esophagus and lung issues. His treatment has given his family hope about his recovery.

http://www.cincinnatichildrens.org Those holiday toys with magnets and button batteries may be more dangerous than you thought. Experts at Cincinnati Children's have some toy-shopping tips that could keep your child out of the emergency room. Kids can unintentionally swallow strong magnets or coin-sized lithium batteries that can do major damage to their airway or intestines. DOCTOR QUOTE 2:23-2:44 "Magnets are a particular problem because they have a lot of attraction towards each other," says Dr. Mike Gittelman, an emergency medicine physician at Cincinnati Children's. "And so, some of the stronger magnets, when you swallow them, and they get inside of your intestines, they can actually form that magnet and all kind of come together, and it can cause problems such as bowel obstructions or a lack of blood flow to areas of your intestines." Recent studies say incidents of children swallowing magnets are on the rise. The Consumer Product Safety Commission estimates that between 2009 and 2011, 1,700 children were taken to the emergency room after ingesting magnets, with many kids requiring surgery. And doctors aren't just seeing the problem in toddlers. They've also seen teenagers accidentally swallow smaller magnetic balls after using them to mimic facial piercings. Some toy companies have voluntarily recalled the tiny magnets known as Buckyballs. But there are similar products still on the market labelled for older kids. Doctors warn that despite the label on a package, it's important to know your child. "A lot of times those are just recommendations on the box." Gittelman says. "You really need to know your child. Because every child, although one child's 2, another child's 4, they're all developmentally different. So you have to one, know your child and have an idea of what they're OK with. When you get hand-me-downs from families, the best thing to do is look online, go to the Consumer Product Safety Commission. Make sure one, that it wasn't recalled and two, get an idea of the appropriate ages that a child should have, cause a parent or a grandparent might give it to a child because they think it's a great toy, but they don't realize that it's not appropriate for their age." Most kids seen in the emergency department after swallowing magnets or batteries are 5 years old or younger, with most being ages 1 to 3, Gittelman says. Another problem is that children often put the magnets or batteries in their ears or noses, he says. The typical child seen for magnet swallowing is 5 years old, and the average child treated for having a magnet stuck in the nose was 10. If you suspect your child has swallowed a magnet or a lithium batteries, take your child to the emergency department immediately. Do not try to induce vomiting or give food or drink. If your child is experiencing breathing problems, call 911. Symptoms from swallowing magnets may appear flu-like and include nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain. "A lot of families have more than one child in the house, and so the younger child sees the older child playing with a toy, and they want to play with it, too. It's really important that if there's a toy with small pieces, where it could be a problem for a smaller child, that the older child needs to keep it in a separate room, so that may be a toy only for their room, and the younger child isn't allowed in there to get those toys," Gittelman says. If a toy or object is small enough to fit through a toilet paper roll, it is too small for a child younger than 5 to play with, he says. For more information, go to http://www.cincinnatichildrens.org
