If You Start to Choke and You Are Alone: Save Your Life in Just One Second

in Overall Health by

The Heimlich Maneuver is a standard procedure in cases of choking.

It consists of abdominal thrusts; the person who performs it stands behind the one that is choking and presses its stomach and diaphragm using the hands, while raising him or her just a little, in order to create a pressure that will take out the food.

However, this maneuver requires two individuals to do it.

This helps your diaphragm to create a pressure and take the food out or at least help you to get some air.
