How to Prevent Choking

Prevention is better than CURE.

No child should die of choking.  Yet every day children choke, and every year hundreds die and thousands land in emergency departments. One of every parent’s biggest fears is seeing their child choking. Knowing what to do in this situation could be the difference between life and death for loved ones. But the most important thing is to train yourself and others around you to recognize and respond to choking hazards.

The info in this post is intended for multiple audiences including parents, grandparents, siblings, teachers, hotel/food industry, childcare providers, babysitters, youth, primary grade students and all. I would not take lot of your time or resources to learn anti-choking techniques to same someone’s life.

Choking is largely preventable. To help reduce the chances of injury and death from choking, this post focuses on prevention strategies and knowing what to do if choking emergency occurs. Choking on food and small objects is a leading cause of death in children under the age of 5. Adults do choke on food and can die because of that too. It is common that food/eatables are biggest threat we have to deal with.

  • Kabab, sausages
  • Nuts and seeds
  • Whole grapes
  • Popcorn
  • Hard or gooey/sticky candy
  • Chunks of peanut butter or cheese
  • Raw vegetables such as carrots
  • Rice cakes; etc.

These days we often see a caution on packing materials and bags that secure them away from babies and young children. There are many other items found in the home that can lodge in a child’s throat and include:

  • Balloons
  • Coins
  • Chewing gum
  • Marbles and ball
  • Toys with small parts that can break off
  • Clothing buttons
  • Small button type batteries
  • Pen or marker caps; etc.

What can be done: 

  • Cutting food into small pieces for young children.
  • Supervising the children at mealtime.
  • Not allowing children to run or play while eating.
  • Encouraging not to take sip when something chewing/eating.
  • Monitoring and educating older children or siblings to prevent them from giving smaller children dangerous foods or small objects.
  • Avoiding toys with small parts.
  • Not allowing young children to play with coins and other small objects.

While you can’t predict when an emergency will occur, you can be prepared. In less time than you think, First Aid to Save a Life can give you the vital knowledge and skills you’ll need to respond to a life-threatening situations like choking with confidence.

Choking Child/Baby

No child should die of choking.  Yet every day children choke, and every year hundreds die and thousands land in emergency departments. One of every parent’s biggest fears is seeing their child choking. Knowing what to do in this situation could be the difference between life and death for loved ones.

Choking among school-aged children is on the rise. Choking on food and small objects is a leading cause of death in children under the age of 5. Young children may not have fully developed muscles for chewing, enough teeth, or the ability to chew and swallow certain foods thoroughly. Toddlers explore their world by putting things in their mouths and their airways are very small in diameter. These traits and behaviors make them vulnerable to choking on foods and small objects that can lodge in the throat and block the airway.

Choking is largely preventable with a little knowledge and by following proven guidelines. But knowing what to do if a child’s airway becomes blocked is equally important.

82% of parents would not know what to do if there child choke, burned themselves or even stopped breathing.

While you can’t predict when an emergency will occur, you can be prepared. In less time than you think, First Aid to Save a Life can give you the vital knowledge and skills you’ll need to respond to a life-threatening situations like choking with confidence.

How to recognize? 

In a choking emergency, quick recognition and action are keys to clearing a blocked airway successfully. when the airway becomes blocked, a child will instinctively begin coughing to clear the blockage and may grasp at the throat.

Other signs of choking may include:

Coughing may be forceful, or weak with wheezing noises.

The child’s skin color may change.

The child may have a look of panic on his/her face.

The child may not be able to cough at all, speak, cry, or breathe.

If the child is not able to cough, speak, cry, or breathe, you must act fast to clear the airway. These signs are an indication of severe choking. All other signs listed above are indicating mild choking.

Alert:

Make sure it is safe for you to help. Get consent if parent/guardians are present and unable to help. Ask for help if no one is present and choking patient is conscious, for rest of the cases implied consent authority will prevail.

Types of Choking:

Mild Airway Obstruction: If a choking child is coughing forcefully, you should encourage coughing, observe closely, and not interfere. But be ready to help if the child/s condition gets worse, such as if the child is not able to clear the blockage with coughing, or can’t breathe.

Severe Airway Obstruction: if the child can’t cough, speak, cry, or breathe, you should have someone else call EMS, while you give first aid for choking.

Don’t wait for help to arrive or delay care. A child in this condition is not getting any oxygen and needs immediate care. If you are lone rescuer, you should give first aid for choking to clear the airway, and then call EMS.

Child Anti-Choking Technique (Abdominal Thrusts/Heimlich Maneuver):

1:- Ask for help (illustrated above).

2:- Wrap your arms around the child’s waist, and find the child’s belly button with one or two fingers.

3:- Next, make a fist with the other hand and place it flat, thumbside against the child’s stomach, just above your fingers(s) and below the lower tip of the child’s breastbone.

4:- Cover your first with the other hand.

5:- Give quick, inward and upward thrusts until the airway is clear.

6:- Monitor the child until help arrives, and ensure follow-up medical care to assess for possible injury.

If the child becomes unresponsive………….

Help the child to the ground, face-up.

If alone, provide 2 minutes of CPR before activating EMS yourself.

Begin CPR starting with compressions (chest compression + ventilation) if you are trained. If not, seek guidance from EMS and do compression-only CPR. Look in mouth for an object before giving rescue breaths. Remove any object seen. Continue CPR until child shows obvious signs of life, or another provider or EMS personnel take over.

Infant Anti-Choking Technique (Chest Thrusts/Back Blows):

1:- Assess Infant:

Look at infant’s face. If infant has weak, ineffective coughs, or lack of sound even when clearly attempting to breathe, act quickly! If available, have a bystander activate EMS.

2:- Give 5 Back Blows:

Lay infant face down over your forearm with legs straddled and with head lower than the chest. Support the head by holding the jaw. Using heel of other hand, give 5 back blows between the shoulder blades.

3:- Give 5 Chest Thrusts:

Sandwich infant between your forearms and turn onto back. Place 2 fingers on breastbone just below the nipple line and give 5 chest thrusts. Repeat back blows and chest thrusts until infant can breathe normally.

If infant becomes unresponsive…………

Gently place infant on firm surface. If alone, provide 2 minutes of CPR before activating EMS yourself.

Begin CPR starting with compressions. Look in mouth for an object before giving rescue breaths. Remove any object seen. Continue CPR until infant shows obvious signs of life, or another provider or EMS personnel take over.

How to recognize the signs of a stroke

Stroke

is a life-threatening condition that is most common in people aged over 60, but can occur at any time in life. Stroke is the third most common cause of death and the first leading cause of disability in developed and developing countries. No large scale studies are available to determine the true incidence of stroke in Pakistan. Estimated annual incidence is 250/100,000, translating to 350,000 new cases every year. WHO says that 1 in every 6 suffers stroke once in lifetime.

Strokes often happen suddenly, without warning. Educating yourself on the signs of a stroke and taking urgent action is vital, as the sooner someone has access to treatment, the less damage their brain is likely to receive.

How do strokes happen?

A stroke occurs when the blood supply to part of a person’s brain is cut off. There are three different kinds;

  • Haemorrhagic– when a weakened blood vessel that supplies blood to the brain bursts.
  • Ischaemic– where blood supply to the brain is stopped due to a blood clot.
  • Transient Ischaemic– where blood supply to the brain is temporarily stopped.

In Pakistan, about 13% of strokes are Haemorrhagic and 87% Ischaemic. A stroke is fatal, and those who survive are often faced with long-term complications, even disability of some type. These include problems with walking, speech, balance, vision and bladder and bowel control. In fact, half of all stroke survivors have a disability and over a third are dependent on others.

The signs of a stroke

Stroke symptoms happen within very quick succession of each other, so if you suspect someone is confused, has severe sudden headache, unable to speak/understand, s/he might be having a stroke and you must act quickly so BE-FAST.

The signs you need to look out for can be remembered with the acronym B.E.F.A.S.T;

Balance – Is the person unsteady on his feet?

Eyes – Vision in one or both eyes lost?

Face – Has the person’s face dropped on one side? Can they smile? Has their mouth or eye dropped?

Arms – Can the person lift both arms in the air and keep them there? Do they have arm weakness or numbness? See if one arm drifts back.

Speech – Is the person’s speech slurred or strange in any other way? Can they speak at all?

Time – If you notice anyone suffering from these symptoms, it’s time to dial EMS (1122/any other number) immediately and ask for an ambulance.

The longer a person’s brain is left without oxygen, the more damaging to them a stroke will be. Immediate recognition by a bystander and a fast response from the emergency services can make a potentially fatal difference to someone suffering from a stroke.

Steps you can take to reduce your risks

Research showed that up to 80% of all strokes can be prevented. There are certain lifestyle choices you may make that increase your risk of having a stroke. Smoking, being overweight, lack of exercise, poor diet and drugs abuse can increase your risks.

Committing to a healthy lifestyle including regular exercise, eating more fruit and vegetables, and cutting out smoking can help reduce your risks of a stroke.

Update on Recovery Position

Update:

The recovery position is used for unresponsive adult victims who clearly have normal breathing and effective circulation. This position is designed to maintain a patent airway and reduce the risk of airway obstruction and aspiration. The victim is placed on his or her side with the lower arm in front of the body.

AHA Viewpoint on Recovery Position:

There are several variations of the recovery position, each with its own advantages. No single position is perfect for all victims.

The position should be stable, near a true lateral position, with the head dependent and with no pressure on the chest to impair breathing.

Studies in normal volunteers show that extending the lower arm above the head and rolling the head onto the
arm, while bending both legs, may be feasible for victims with known or suspected spinal injury.

The above update is from the adult and pediatric basic life support (BLS) 2017
focused updates to the American Heart Association (AHA) guidelines for cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) and emergency cardiovascular care (ECC).

Advanced Bleeding Control Course

According to the CDC traumatic injury is one of the leading causes of death for people under 50 years of age (in the U.S). A large portion of those deaths are from severe bleeding – the most treatable cause of death due to trauma. Up to 20% of trauma deaths could be prevented with effective bleeding control technique’s application.

The new Advanced Bleeding Control training program is designed to provide detailed instruction on the control of severe external bleeding, including the use of direct pressure, commercial pressure bandages, tourniquets and packed dressings.

The programs are ideal for those who have a greater than average chance of witnessing an injury event in which severe bleeding occurs and professional medical care is not readily available or is overwhelmed, such as law enforcement, private security, workplace emergency response team personnel and staff at large events, campuses or large occupied buildings.

This program can be used for standalone training or as an alternative training segment for the existing Control of Bleeding segment from current courses available.

“Don’t bleed on roads but donate blood.”

So get trained and make the difference between life and death.  Mark your calendar today for our next training session:

Karachi:           July 07, 2018            Advanced Bleeding Control Techniques

Lahore:             July 15, 2018            Advanced Bleeding Control Techniques

Give Way to Ambulance

Obstructing an ambulance is a form of violence against health care services. Ambulances – whether belonging to government emergency services, hospitals or humanitarian organizations – have the ‘Right of Way’ on roads. This public pledge campaign is supported by the ICRC in a nationwide initiative to help implement road rights for ambulances and foster respect of the Pakistani public for health care services as a whole.

We all know what an ambulance looks like. We all know what an ambulance sounds like, we also know what function and role an ambulance plays. But why is it that we often see ambulances striving hard to make way in traffic in order to save a precious life. Is it our lack of empathy, our neglect or is it that we do not bother? I have made my pledge to always give way to ambulance and other emergency vehicles. You are requested to do yours…

It is our social obligation to give way to ambulances and other emergency vehicles. ICRC took this initiative to remind all of us to remember our obligation towards others right and make a pledge to give a way to ambulance always. Pehlay Zindagi is a nationwide public awareness campaign on the road rights of ambulances in Pakistan. Anyone can become a member of this online community by taking a pledge to give way to ambulance. But do remember to give way to all emergency vehicles including fire brigade, police, etc.

We look forward to your support to the cause and support.

To Your Safety,
Faisal Javed Mir & First Aid to Save a Life

First Aid Training for Small Businesses

Just like in large organizations, small businesses also need to ensure their employees are appropriately trained to avoid accidents and injuries at work and also know what to do to save lives. Not to mention the business’s obligations to stay current with any training requirements mandated by local, provincial or federal regulatory bodies.

We term any entity as a small business where the total staff is less than 10. We have set a minimum possible fee for them so that they can invest in life-saving skills to save big on health and safety of their workforce and in-line with regulatory requirements.

For registration, send us an email or dial our contact numbers. Do let us know if you have 1o or more number of delegates to be trained in one city and we can join you there to run the in-house session for your organization.
