Section 2: Crisis Management
We have all choked at some point on a piece of food, or something that has caught the back of our throat. A choking incident can become very serious in a short space of time, and so quick intervention is key!
If coughing does not clear the obstruction, you need to carry out 5 back slaps.
If this does not work, call 999 and carry out 5 abdominal thrusts.
Repeat until either, you clear the obstruction or your casualty becomes unconscious and you need to commence basic life support.
