Description

Choking, or foreign body airway obstruction, is a common, yet treatable, cause of accidental death. This article aims to provide an overview of the skills required when faced with this emergency in adults, including how to recognise this emergency, the immediate management and treatment required, and the necessary aftercare.

Choking usually occurs when a person is eating or drinking.
An obstruction may classified as mild or severe.
For a severe obstruction in a conscious person, it may be necessary to administer back blows and/or abdominal thrusts to remove the obstruction from the airway.

Objectives

On completion of this course you will gain an understanding of:
Recognise when choking occurs and list the signs and symptoms of choking.
Quickly assess whether an obstruction is mild or severe.
Describe the various techniques for removing an obstruction from the airway in a conscious person.
