Updated for new 2020 AHA / ILCOR guidelines. Choking Baby / Infant First Aid training video by the CPR Certification Institute (authorized Health Ed Solutions training center). Mark Dzwonkiewicz, the lead instructor from Health Ed Solutions, demonstrates the proper way of providing basic life support to a choking conscious infant. He touches on the following updated AHA and ILCOR guidelines:
1️⃣ Perform 5 back blows. Remember to place the heel of the hand right between the scapula.
2️⃣ If the obstruction doesn't come out, cradle and flip over the infant with the head still down. Perform 5 chest thrusts, 2 fingers just beneath the nipple line and compress about 1/3 the distance between the child's chest.
3️⃣ Look into the airway and check if you can see and remove the object.
4️⃣ If you can't see and remove the object, perform 2 ventilations.
Continue the cycle until the obstruction comes out or until help comes.
Thanks for watching and stay tuned for more video lessons from the CPR Certification Institute!
Here is some more information about the CPR Certification Institute:
As an authorized Health Ed Solutions training center, CPR Certification Institute was created to achieve a simple goal – to make learning lifesaving skills easier and more accessible for laypersons and medical professionals alike. Our commitment to providing a robust training and testing option that is medically accurate, flexible, and engaging is the driving force behind every course we create.
All of our online certification courses are created by board certified medical professionals, and reviewed for accuracy by the Health Ed Solutions medical review board. Each practice test is generated uniquely, and every final exam is designed to ensure you learn everything you need to know to appropriately react when there is a life threatening emergency.
We believe that the more people there are who know how to save a life, the more lives can be saved. Our courses are created specifically to benefit a wide range of lifesavers: high school students getting ready to graduate, nurses, physicians, medical techs, first responders, lifeguards, nursing home and day care workers, and even the average layperson who might someday find themselves in the position of being able to offer aid.
Receiving appropriate CPR or First Aid care can mean the difference between life and death. Those who do not receive CPR immediately following a cardiac event rarely make it to a hospital alive. Your quick action could mean they have a chance.
Our courses cover CPR and AED training, First Aid, Infant CPR, Babysitting, and Bloodborne Pathogens - with more courses to be added in the near future - such as ACLS, PALS, BLS, and NRP. It’s a small time and cost commitment to become certified, but can make all the difference in the world. All of our programs are 100% online and can be completed from any mobile device, tablet, or computer.
Sign up to become certified today, and join the ranks of lifesavers-in-waiting across the globe!
