Choking Incidents occur with children when food or small objects are involved and can easily become lodged in their airway if they are accidentally breathed in instead of swallowed.
When this happens, air can't flow normally into or out of the lungs, so the child can't breathe properly, If airflow into and out of the lungs is blocked and the brain is deprived of oxygen, choking can become a life-threatening emergency. This course aim to discuss the several possible situations you might face when a child is at risk of choking and tips on how to handle them. By knowing the dangers you can keep children safe and prevent choking.
