An emergency help that is carried out to save a choking victim.

Question 2:

Amirul is eating in a restaurant with his grandfather. Suddenly, his grandfather shows the signs of choking. What should he do to help his grandfather? Your explanation must cover all the steps that are taken.

Amirul needs to help his grandfather by performing the Heimlich Manoeuvre.

Firstly, Amirul needs to stand behind his grandfather and bend his grandfather’s body slightly forward.

Then, he needs to put his hands around his grandfather’s waist and clench a fist with his right hand. The right fist is put between his grandfather’s navel and ribs. The left hand is put on top of his right fist.

Next, he needs to press and jerk upwards with quick force. The pressure given will increase the pressure in his grandfather’s lungs, causing the foreign object to be ejected.

Question 3:
