First Aid -- How to save yourself if you are choking!

April 28, 2017 • By Shirley Marie Bradby

Every day, there are news stories that show us that even in a domestic setting that is relatively safe, an accident may be just around the corner, and knowing how to act in a timely manner can make a huge difference.

This is why Jeff Rehman, a firefighter, and paramedic with 22 years of experience, wanted to spread the word about an effective technique that can save you from choking if you are alone.

As shown in the video, get on the floor on all fours and instantly lift your arms and your head and fall forward in order to land on your chest and belly with all your weight. 

This action should cause air to be pushed forcibly up through your throat and airways and it should be strong enough to clear the respiratory tract.
