AIRWAY

"A" is for AIRWAY. A child's breaths may be extremely faint and shallow - look, listen and feel for any signs of breathing. If there are none, the tongue may be obstructing the airway and preventing the child from breathing on his own.

Exercise extra caution when you open the victim's air passage using the head tilt/chin lift technique (Figure 1). This will shift the tongue away from the airway.

If the child is still not breathing after his airway has been cleared, you will have to assist him in breathing

   


1. Look, listen, and feel
