If I make any spelling mistakes please forgive me like the title says I have just had the" FIGHT OF MY LIFE" Dec just choked on a chip, yes I gave my son chips I am a bad mummy, but he had the chip lodged in his throat, he was going blue and couldnt get a breath, I just stood there like a dummy for about 10 seconds until my first aid training kicked in. It was horrible, I have never cried so much in my life, I am so lucky I knew what to do and even luckier it worked, I didnt need to call 999 but I did phone my doc because it is advised that any baby that has chocked should be seen by a medical professional, my doc called to my house after surgery (about 15mins later) and he was happy with him, by this stage Dec was laughing and playing. I know samsmum poster a CPR thread so I thought I would post first aid for choking babies, you never know when you might need it. I am still shaking from my experience and I have advanced first aid. I hope nobody ever has to use this xx Choking - baby aged up to one year Top A baby can easily choke on food or small objects in the mouth; you need to act quickly to clear the obstruction. Are they able to breathe, cry or cough? If so, this is a mild case and the obstruction will probably clear on its own. Keep an eye on the baby and make sure their condition doesn't deteriorate. If not, this is a severe case of choking. You should: 1. Lay the baby face down along your forearm, with their head low. 2. Give up to 5 back blows (as shown) between the shoulder blades with the heel of your hand. Check their mouth quickly after each one and remove any obvious obstruction. If the obstruction is still present: 3. Turn the baby onto their back and give up to 5 chest thrusts, with 2 fingers in the middle of the chest pushing inwards and upwards. Check the mouth quickly after each one. If the obstruction does not clear after three cycles of back blows and chest thrusts, dial 999 (or 112) for an ambulance. Continue cycles of back blows and chest thrusts until help arrives and resuscitate if necessary. Seek medical advice for any baby who has been given chest thrusts. This may be pretty clear for people who have training but someone who doesnt it can seem like a load of google, if you want to see diagrams go to [email protected].
