Obstructed Airway Training

To see if you understand what to do when a child chokes, select one of the following:

  • See if the child can speak
  • Listen for breath sounds
  • Do back slaps
  • Wait until the child becomes unconscious

The following sequence is recommended to relieve an obstruction:

Send someone to activate the emergency response team and get the AED, then open the airway See if you can see an object, and if you can, remove it. Try to give 2 breaths, if not, retry to open the airway if the first breath doesn't make the chest rise. Then begin chest compressions and start cycles of 30 compressions and 2 breaths. If you are alone and about 2 minutes have passed, try to get the emergency response team to come and continue to provide emergency compressions and breathing. Great! Now you have completed the sequence of steps for a child who is choking and who then becomes unresponsive.

In summary, the sequence includes:

First, check to see if the child can speak or cough. If the victim is able to speak or cough, the obstruction is mild, so try to get the victim to continue to cough or clear the obstruction. But if the victim has a severe obstruction and cannot talk or cough, start abdominal thrusts, which are the correct thing for a victim with severe airway obstruction.

If you want to do abdominal thrusts:

  • Get on your knees behind the child and wrap your arms around the child.
  • Make a fist with one of your hands.
  • Put the thumb side of your fist against the child's stomach in the middle of the navel and below the sternum.
  • Take your fist and push it into the child's abdomen with an upward thrust. Keep doing this until the object comes out. Give each new push with a new movement to relieve the obstruction.
