Important! When trying to assist a casualty who is choking by attempting to clear her/his airway, a Responder should be persistent. Don’t give up. A Responder should Call 9-1-1 or contact the Emergency Medical Services (or get someone else to make the call) and continue the following steps without interruption until the obstruction is dislodged or Emergency Medical Personnel arrive and take over.
Recognizing the Signs and Symptoms of Choking, varying levels of choking & their respective treatment, and obtaining consent to assist is not something you can learn by reading a great article like this, nor with online training. Think about it... do you want someone trying to save your life that "learned CPR" by clicking a mouse? Find out about LIVE CPR Training at your location... check out American CPR Training™
