IF CONSCIOUS BUT CHOKING : give abdominal thrusts until object comes out(stand behind the person, put your arms around him/her and squeeze the abdomen *just below the diaphragm*. IF PERSON BECOMES UNCONSIOUS : (lay the person on a flat surface) step 1 - tilt head backwards and clear any object from mouth. Step 2 - give 2 slow breaths, if breaths don´t go in, retilt head and attempt 2 breaths again. IF AIR WONT GO IN : step 3 - give up to 5 abdominal thrusts (this time kneeling astride the person and using the heels of both hands together to sharply push up, on the persons abdomen as if trying to force something out from the abdomen out through the mouth).
