Dealing with a Conscious Choking Adult or Child



  • Firstly encourage the casualty to cough
  • Shout for help but don’t leave the casualty yet
  • Bend the casualty forwards so the head is lower than the chest. For a smaller child you can place them on your knee to do this
  • Give up to 5 firm blows between the shoulder
  • If the obstruction is still not cleared perform abdominal thrusts.
