Once in the emergency room, the most common protocol is to preform an X-ray of the affected area to determine where the object is stuck. Many times the X-ray can only determine an obstruction given the object is large enough to be visible on the X-ray machine. The next step is to preform a bronchoscopy, assuming the X-ray was inconclusive.
