Pause for Performance: Choking

The actions you take when someone is choking can save a life. If you ever find yourself assisting a choking victim, pause, then perform the proper steps to help the victim.

  • First, assess the situation to ensure it’s safe to approach and assist the victim.
  • If the victim is an adult and standing, proceed to perform sharp, upward and inward abdominal thrusts slightly above the belly button.
  • If the victim is a conscious infant, hold them over your arm while cradling their head angled slightly downward in one hand, and then alternate between back blows and chest thrusts.
  • For unconscious choking victims, perform CPR, check for a foreign object in the victim’s mouth and remove any foreign objects you find before returning to CPR.
