Once a choking victim becomes unconscious, make sure EMS has been activated. Give 30 chest compressions. Check for the object in the patient's mouth and sweep it out if possible. Attempt a breath. If there is no chest rise and fall, reposition the airway and attempt another breath. If air still does not go in, perform 30 chest compressions, check for the object again, and sweep it out if possible. Attempt a breath. If there is no chest rise and fall, reposition the airway and attempt another breath. Continue this process until the airway is open and air goes into the lungs.
