Clearing an infant’s airway during a choking emergency

Infants and toddlers are the most common victims of choking because they like to put objects like small toys into their mouths. This is dangerous, especially if the child is not constantly watched over. However, there are quick and easy steps to help dislodge the object blocking the infant’s airway.

  • Place infant face up on your forearm.
  • Rest your forearm on your thigh, with the head of the infant lower than the rest of the body.
  • Place two fingers on the center of the infant’s chest, slightly lower than the nipples.
  • Press down slightly and make five thrusts.
  • Start CPR if infant doesn’t resume breathing.
