How should you react when faced with an ennuegament?


When the cervell does not replenish oxygen for more than four minutes, it can cause permanent brain damage and, in most cases, death. Knowing how to act in the presence of something that is dangerous due to obstruction of some food or another element is crucial.

First of all, you should know that if the person who is suffering from choking has some difficulties in breathing but faces speaking or having a strong cough, the best thing is not to be afraid, nor to be able to cope with the scene as he or she does.

Coughing works as a mechanism to expel the obstructing element. However, when choking is more serious, in which the person has obvious difficulty breathing, the best thing is to act quickly and for a long time with first aid techniques.

Tips for first aid in case of ennuegament

There are a series of first aid techniques that you must last until the end of a dream. I describe them to you below:

Heimlich maneuver

This maneuver is one of the most familiar and one of the main reactions when someone is angry. This technique can be used while the person is recovered, safe or depressed.

If the victim is conscious and safe or alert, place the victim and wrap the waist and arms. She places the heel of the arm corresponding to the pole in the center of the abdomen, just below the lower end of the breast and presses it on the back of the head. Press cap to dins with rapid compressions and upwards and repetitions until the object continues to be expelled and the person begins to breathe or cough.

Mandibular traction and tongue relief

This is another of the first aid techniques in case of death. Sometimes, the lack of oxygen may cause loss of connection. If this is the case and the victim is unconscious, lay him flat on his back and try to perform the jaw traction and tongue removal technique. To do this, open your mouth and press the tongue: this will prevent the tongue from coming out of the back of the throat and will help you clarify the respiratory tract. If we can see the object causing the disappointment, we will try to remove it as much as possible. On top of that, it's too complicated, as you could force the object to face more easily and cause further obstruction.

If you continue to breathe, gently tilt the victim's head and raise the barbette. Aleshores has to proceed to assisted breathing, or as it is col·loquially coneix, mouth to mouth. He places his mouth over the victim's mouth, then opens the mouth and gives him two gloped air goggles that last a second and mig to the corpse to expand the lungs. Next, place the base of the palm of one of the hands on the middle line between the heart and the thoracic cavity of the victim and then place the other hand on top of the first. Next, apply firm but gentle pressure to the abdomen and perform two quick compressions on each leg and leg.

He repeated the steps until the victim could breathe again or emergency help arrived.

Cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR)

Cardiopulmonary resuscitation is another first aid procedure that can only be used when the victim is not breathing, which indicates that the patient has stopped working. CPR involves compressing the thorax by pressing at the base of the palm of the hand on the lower part of the stern. These compressions are to be administered for a period of approximately four seconds in zinc groups, followed by a soft glop applied mouth to mouth. This technique can help ensure that the victim continues to breathe and the blood circulates until emergency help arrives.

This technique, however, has something to offer specific training. Therefore, it is so important to train to know how to act in an emergency and to guarantee a cardio-protected environment. It is important to remember that, if these techniques can save lives, they DO NOT replace a certified first aid course or appropriate training that will teach mouth-to-mouth resuscitation and CPR technique.

Neosalus includes the LifeVac, an emergency kit designed to act quickly in cases of emergency which, with suction, releases an obstruction to the victim's airway once the emergency protocol has been followed.
