Choking Prevention & Treatment
Infants and toddlers are at significant risk for choking on small objects. Their airway is small and they love to put things in their mouths setting up a recipe for disaster. Be prepared for such events by learning infant and toddler CPR by taking a local course near you at the YMCA, local hospital or online. If an event does occur, remain calm and follow your training while triggering the 911/EMS system. Follow this link for examples and recommendations from Dr. Magryta about prevention.
