First Aid
The Unconscious Person

If the choking individual has collapsed, position the person on his or her back. Kneeling astride the person, place your hands at the base of the rib cage. The heel of one hand should be down, the fingers of the upper hand between those of the lower, grasping the palm. Deliver five quick upward thrusts to the abdomen until the obstructing object is dislodged.
