Learn To Save The Life Of A Choking Baby In Under Three Minutes

Did you know that airway obstruction from choking, suffocation, and strangulation is the leading cause of death in babies under one year old in the US? [1]

All it takes is a few minutes of your time to watch this video to learn how to help relieve an airway obstruction from a conscious choking baby. Of course nothing will replace the skills learned in a real hands on CPR course, nevertheless studies have showed that people can learn how to save a life just by watching a demonstration.

The below method is very good at quickly removing the airway obstruction. Several people have told me that all they needed to do was deliver a few back blows to get the obstruction out of the baby’s airway.

A note about the video. I spent sometime reviewing several videos on youtube until I found one that demonstrated the technique accurately. This is the exact same technique that is taught according to the American Heart Association and Heart and Stroke Association (Canada) guidelines. Both associations follow the latest 2005 CPR guidelines as provided by the International Liaison Committee On Resuscitation (ILCOR).
