Campbell Bay, July 5: A three-year-old child with a blocked nostril was brought to the Primary Health Centre (PHC), Campbell Bay at 0600 hrs on 03 Jul 24. The on-duty staff discovered a foreign object lodged deep in the nose of the child, posing challenges for removal. Post attempts to remove the foreign body from the nose and discussions by the local civil doctors of PHC, the case was found to be beyond their capability. Therefore, at around 1215 hrs, Surgeon Lt Cdr Naveen Kumar, a surgical specialist of the Indian Navy who was on-duty at the medical camp, was urgently called for assistance by PHC staff. He immediately, rushed to IMS Hospital at Campbell Bay, collected the required surgical instruments, and reached PHC immediately.
