First-aid for choking
Choking episodes in a person are an emergency and need to be tackled promptly. There is a loss of valuable time in calling in the paramedics and hence every person needs to know how to offer first-aid to a choking person and save him or her.
For a child, immediately back blows and abdominal thrusts should be given. According to the British Red Cross, put the child prone on your knees and administer five back blows. These should be firm and given in between the shoulder blades of the child. These back blows create vibration and pressure in the airways and can dislodge the foreign body and save the child.
If back blows do not help, place the child supine now and give abdominal thrusts. Place your hands around the child’s waist and push inwards and upwards above the belly button of the child. This will force the lodged foreign body out of the airways.
In the meantime, call emergency and continue with back blows and abdominal thrusts to dislodge the foreign matter.
