    There's something called self Heimlich maneuver. You perform it on yourself when no one's there to help.

    What to do when someone is choking?

    :salams

    I was reading about choking the other day and came across some interesting figures.
    Anyone can choke when eating, sadly, many people don't know what to do to help them.
    • According to a report from the National Safety Council, choking causes 3,900 deaths per year, which makes choking the sixth leading cause of accidental death in the United States.

    • Within about four minutes [of choking] the victim will suffer permanent brain damage.

    • Within about five minutes [of choking] the victim will be dead.


    Symptoms of Choking:
    • Choking victim is unable to breathe or to speak.
    • Then, because not enough oxygen is reaching the brain, the victim becomes pale, turns blue, and falls unconscious.


    What to do? Apply the Heimlich Maneuver!

    Standing:


    Sitting:
    • Kneel behind him.
    • Put your arms around both him and the chair, and perform the maneuver in the same way.


    Lying down:

    Here's a demo:
