FIRST AID


CHOKING:
HEIMLICH MANEUVER FOR A CONSCIOUS SITTING OR STANDING
ADULT VICTIM


Without oxygen the brain can begin to die within 4 to 6 minutes.

Rapid first aid for choking can save a life.

The Heimlich Maneuver is the best known method of removing an object from the airway of a person who is choking. You can use it on yourself or someone else.

If you choke on something and your airway becomes blocked, you will not be able to speak. Signal people that are nearby that you are choking: do this right away, before you pass out. Use the "Universal Sign for Choking".


If the airway is almost completely blocked, there may be high-pitched noises when the person inhales, great difficulty breathing, and a very weak, ineffective cough.

If the person cannot speak, cough, or breath, then the person may have a completely blocked airway. Emergency care for a person with a completely blocked airway, or a person with an airway almost completely blocked is the same.

If YOU are alone and YOU are choking, you can do the Heimlich maneuver on yourself.

Position your fist slightly above your navel and give yourself quick, inward and upward thrusts, or lean forward and press your abdomen quickly over any firm object, such as the back of a chair or a porch railing.


If you think another person is choking because of an almost or completely blocked airway, CALL FOR HELP, and immediately prepare to do abdominal thrusts (the Heimlich Maneuver).

Tell the victim what you are going to do, then
Stand behind the victim with the front of your body pressed against the victim's back.


These are the steps:

1.Wrap your arms around his or her waist. Bend the person slightly forward.

Grasp the choking victim from behind. Place your fist, thumb side in, just below the victim's breast bone and above the belly button, and with the other hand placed firmly over the fist.

Then pull your fist firmly and abruptly into the top of the stomach in order to force the object up the windpipe.

You should try not to squeeze the ribs with your forearms. Each thrust should be distinct and delivered as if it will be the only thrust needed to free the obstruction. Repeat the thrusts as described above until the obstructions comes free or the victim becomes unconscious.




Following the expulsion of the object that caused the choking, keep the victim still and get medical help. All choking victims should have a medical examination, since complications can arise not only from the incident but also from the first aid measures that were taken. Occasionally an object will enter the lung instead of being expelled. While the victim may appear to improve and breathe normally, in a few days signs and symptoms of a foreign body in the lung will appear such as, wheezing, persistent cough, and pneumonia. If this happens, get medical help immediately.
