Think Fast: How to Help Someone Who is Choking

This week, WIS-TV interviewed Dr. Don Moore of Lexington Medical Center’s Urgent Care in Irmo about how to help someone who is choking. The segment is below. The information is very valuable in a situation where you have to think fast.

Here are some notes from the doctor:

~When someone is choking, they will not be able to talk.
~Ask the person to try to cough.
~If the person cannot cough, try an abdominal thrust. From behind, put a clenched first above the person’s belly button and place your other hand over it. Pull up as if you were trying to lift the person off the ground, which will create a pressure wave to hopefully expel the object.
~If that doesn’t work, try back blows. With the base of your hand, hit the person on the back between the shoulder blades.
~Alternate between abdominal thrusts and back blows until the object is out.
~If the person goes unconscious, call 911 and start CPR.
~Anyone who has had a choking episode should see a physician to make sure they’re OK.

~If you’re alone, try performing an abdominal thrust by yourself with the help of a chair or table.

~If you have a baby who is choking, tip the child over and perform softer back blows.
