Did You Know?

If you or someone else inhales a foreign object…

The five-and-five approach:

  • Give the person five back blows. Using the heel of your hand, make five quick thumps between the victim’s shoulder blades.
  • Do the Heimlich maneuver. Make a fist and place it slightly above the victim’s navel. Cover it with your other hand and make five inward upward thrusts.
  • Repeat until object is dislodged.

Note: If victim’s breathing and circulation do not resume, begin cardiopulmonary resuscitation immediately.
