Storyboard Text

  • oh no! this infant is choking! Go call 911! Meanwhile I will try to get it out.
  • I will place the infant's face down on my forearm and deliver five strong blows to the area between their shoulder blades
  • It is not working, so I need to try phase 2 before help arrives
  • I turned the baby over on it's back and will now press down on the infant's breastbone with my index finger, with enough power that the chest moves down by 1/3
  • It worked!!!! Or else I would have had to redone the chest thrusts
  • Yay! I just told the 911 Operator that the baby is no longer choking! Thanks for saving the baby!
