•A series of upward abdominal thrusts are recommended for children and adults. Infants should receive alternating back blows and chest thrusts.
•Aspiration occurs most frequently with infants and toddlers. When a child aspirates a foreign object, the immediate reaction is choking and hard, forceful coughing. Usually, this dislodges the object. However, the airway may become completely obstructed and require intervention.
•A finger sweep should ONLY be done on an unconsious patient if an object is visible. Never perform a blind finger sweep.
