By:Jodi More


The person goes unconscious, lower the patient safely to the ground.

Activate EMS, send someone to call 911

Infant- Give 30 chest compressions

Open the airway and check the mouth for a foreign body. If something is seen sweep it out with a finger. Use the pinky finger for an infant.

Attempt rescue breaths. If breaths do not make the chest rise, reposition head and reattempt rescue breaths.
