Adult/Child - Unconscious

When a conscious choking victim becomes unconscious begin CPR immediately. If you’re not alone, send someone to activate EMS. Healthcare Providers should perform 2 minutes of CPR before leaving the victim to activate EMS. The first thing you should do to the victim is the “Tongue Jaw Lift”. With your index finger under the victim’s chin, place your thumb in the victim’s mouth just far enough to grab the jaw and lift it up. This will allow you to see into the victim’s mouth and perhaps see the obstruction. If you see an object, remove it. NEVER DO A BLIND FINGER SWEEP ON A CHILD OR INFANT. Then attempt to open the victim’s airway with the Head Tilt Chin Lift and give a breath. If it doesn’t go in, reposition the head and give another breath. If that does not go in, continue CPR for another 2 minutes.
