Somebody can choke at any time, especially when they eat. This incident happens all the time, could be anywhere and by anyone. That’s why it’s better for us to have first aid knowledge in choking people. It could save somebody’s life. However, do you know what to do if you see someone chokes in front of you? Clearly, someone must immediately give him/her first aid or bad things will happen. Anyway, below here we will give you information what to do if you see someone chokes. Hopefully it will be helpful. Please check this out!
1. If someone that chokes still able to speak, cries, cough, or breathe, the first thing you should do is to encourage them to keep coughing. It helps them to clear the blockage that caused him/her chokes.
2. Next, please ask them to spit out the object that makes them chokes if that object is in their mouth.
3. Never ever do this: put your finger inside their mouth. We know they look so painful, but if you put your fingers inside their mouth, probably they might bite you accidentally.
4. If someone that chokes couldn’t speak, cries, breathe, or cough at all, you should start to do back blows. Just stand behind them and support their chest with one hand. Next, lean them forward. It helps the object come out of their mouth.
5. Try to give them at least five sharp blows between their shoulder blades. Do it with the heel of your hand.
6. Last but not least, check if it’s cleared or not yet.
