I was first taught the Heimlich in a NICU training I went to when my oldest son was born. It was part of a baby safety video. I have to say I sort of forgot. I had a general idea but who knows if that would have saved my son. I was scanning Pinterest and it just happened to be one of the pins. THANK YOU JESUS! I took two seconds, looked at the pin and moved on. I didn't think I would be using it any time soon. I honestly believe that quick review made all the difference. If you haven't learned the Heimlich Maneuver or it's been a while please take two minutes and watch the video below.
This video from HowCast.com is excellent!
Here are links for preforming the Heimlich on a child or an adult.
Hopefully you never have to use this. Last night as I tucked Ethan in I was so happy I took a few minutes to refresh my skills.
