How to resuscitate a child

Back blows, chest thrusts & cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR)


Following chest or abdominal thrusts, reassess your child:

If the object is not dislodged and your child is still conscious, continue the sequence of back blows and either chest thrusts or abdominal thrusts.

Call out or send for help if you are still on your own.

Don't leave the child at this stage.
