The One Trick Everyone Should Know That Can Save A Choking Baby’s Life

St. John Ambulance posted a video on YouTube, that every parent should watch. They are an organization that teaches people how to perform first aid. Forty percent of parents have seen their baby choke, while eighty percent of these parents did not know what to do. Every day, thirty-four children are treated in the emergency room for choking.

Below is a video to help parents if their baby is choking. First, you will need to turn him or her over on their stomach. Give your baby five back blows, and that should get the object out of the airway. If that does not work, then you will need to turn your baby on over on his or her back while giving the baby chest thrusts until the object comes out.

If this does not help and your baby is still choking, then you will need to call an ambulance. St. John Ambulance encourages everyone to share this video with as many people as possible. This organization also has other lifesaving videos on their YouTube page, including a video showing how to perform CPR on babies.
