How to resolve chokingFirst, try to breathe or swallow, then maybe say a few words

If you can still breathe normally, swallow, and/or talk, you are probably choking but not completely. Don't be afraid if you aren't fully choking and can still breathe and talk, if this happens, drink as much water if you can find any in large swallows or swallow your saliva. Your throat will probably be very sore, but keep drinking and waiting, the food should either slip through or dissolve in a few minutes. If the object is bigger than an inch in diameter and is not food or is not dissolvable, seek help by showing your hands on your throat and alerting people with hand gestures. If you are aware that you can't talk and are fully choking, get help, if there is no people around or near, try doing chest thump's on yourself by putting your hands in a fist position and your thumb onto your stomach just above the bellybutton.

Another thing you can do is lean forward on a chair and let your weight fall towards the chair and push down on the chair.

If you are choking, it is recommended that you raise your arms up over your head. You should also let someone know that you are choking.
