Giving rescue breaths; will that not push the obstruction deeper?
Jeff with admin. says
You will only perform rescue breaths if you are able to clear the obstructing object from the victims mouth. If you are not able to clear the obstructing object then you would continue with chest compressions. You would complete 30 chest compressions and then attempt to open the airway and visualize the obstructing object. This repeated until the obstructing object is cleared or emergency services arrive and take over care.
