First aid for a choking person

How vĩ đại perform abdominal thrusts, also called the Heimlich maneuver, on yourself

Choking happens when an object lodges in the throat or windpipe blocking the flow of air. In adults, a piece of food is usually vĩ đại blame. Young children often choke on small objects. Choking is life-threatening. It cuts off oxygen vĩ đại the brain. Give first aid as quickly as possible if you or someone else is choking.

Watch for these signs of choking:

  • One or both hands clutched vĩ đại the throat

  • Cough, which may either be weak or forceful
  • Skin, lips and nails that change color turning xanh rờn or gray
  • Loss of consciousness

If a choking person can cough forcefully, let the person keep coughing.

Coughing might naturally remove the stuck object.

If a person can't cough, talk, cry or laugh forcefully, give first aid vĩ đại the person.

The American Red Cross recommends the following steps:

  • Give five back blows. Stand vĩ đại the side and just behind a choking adult. For a child, kneel down behind. Place your arm across the person's chest vĩ đại tư vấn the person's body toàn thân. Bend the person over at the waist vĩ đại face the ground. Strike five separate times between the person's shoulder blades with the heel of your hand.

If the person becomes unconscious, start standard cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) with chest compressions and rescue breaths.

If the person is pregnant or if you can't get your arms around the stomach, give chest thrusts:

  • Put your hands at the base of the breastbone, just above the joining of the lowest ribs.

  • Begin CPR if the person still doesn't respond. If the airway is still blocked, use chest compressions such as those that are used in CPR vĩ đại remove the stuck object. Only use two rescue breaths per cycle. Recheck the mouth regularly for the object.
