A conscious adult choking victim may not be able to talk, cough, or breathe, and may do the universal choking sign with hands around their throat. Ask if the patient needs help. Separate the patient's feet, place one foot behind their feet, and raise their elbows. Place one hand with thumb tucked in against the abdomen, above the bellybutton, and grab your fist with the other hand. Perform abdominal thrusts until the object comes out of the patient's airway or the patient becomes unconscious.
