When somebody begins to choke, virtually everyone around them will start to panic.
This is because nearly everyone has experienced the feeling of terror when an object becomes stuck in their airway and they cannot breathe.
When this happens, time is of the essence before the person becomes unconscious. If the obstruction is not removed, brain death is expected after just 10 minutes due to lack of oxygen.
Placing things such as tubes or fingers into the mouth is dangerous due to the risk of pushing the obstruction further back or causing oral damage.
People with swallowing difficulties and/or learning disability have a further increased risk of choking and every year people with swallowing difficulties die from choking while eating and drinking which could be prevented.
