Lungs Pediatric Foreign Body Aspiration, what is the common site?

Need confirmation of the correct age groups
in relation to foreign body aspiration in a child <1 and in a child >1


is the larynx the most common site of f.body aspiration in children >1 and right main stem bronchus or trachea in children <1 years of age

is that correct or is it the other way around

Thanks in advance

(wasn't sure because in an old kaplan book it had it the opposite way and the new 2010 kaplan book has it the way stated above.

typo perhaps

Search It's always right main bronchus!

It's always the right main bronchus whether less than one year or above one year or at any age!

Yep, in most cases the answer will not change, stick with it. The questions try to trick you ( yeah I hate that!)
