Adults: -Cut food into small pieces.
PREVENTION IS NO ACCIDENT
-Chew food slowly and thoroughly, especially if wearing dentures.-Avoid laughing and talking during chewing and swallowing. -Avoid excessive intake of alcohol before and during meals. Infants and Children: -Keep marbles, beads, thumbtacks, and other small objects out of their reach and prevent them from walking, running, or playing with food or toys in their mouths.
If you observe an "conscious" ADULT choking: -Ask, "Are you choking?" -If the victim can speak, cough, or breathe, DO NOT INTERFERE. -If the victim CANNOT speak, cough, or breathe, give subdiaphragmatic abdominal thrusts (the Heimlich maneuver) until the foreign body is expelled or the victim becomes unconscious. (Or in case of extreme obesity or late pregnancy, give chest thrusts.) IIf the Victim Becomes Unconscious: Visit the site for all the informations. We only think about 1st-aid when we need help. If you have any 1st-aid site that you believe is good leave a comment and I will publish it. I can only think about choking for the moment. Have a good and healthy week!
