If you think that there is a conscious choking infant who cannot cough, cry or breathe, you will need to give 5 back blows and 5 chest thrusts. Follow these steps:
- Position the infant face-up on your forearm with his or her head lower than your chest. Support the head and neck by holding it firmly in the palm of your hand.
- Then turn the infant face-down while supporting your forearm on your thigh.
- With the heel of your hand give 5 back blows between the infant’s shoulder blades.
