Use this scenario to answer the next 2 questions: An 8-month-old infant is eating and suddenly begins to cough. The infant is unable to make any noise shortly after. You pick up the infant and shout for help. You have determined that the infant is responsive and choking with a severe airway obstruction. How do you relieve the airway obstruction?
The infant becomes unresponsive. Which action do you perform to relieve choking in an unresponsive infant?

When you are performing CPR on an unresponsive person whom you know is choking, what modification should you incorporate?
How can rescuers ensure that they are providing effective breaths when using a bag-mask device?
Which characteristics of chest compressions in high-quality CPR are given to a child?
Use this scenario to answer the next 2 questions: A 9-year-old child has suddenly collapsed. After confirming that the scene is safe, a single rescuer determines that the child is in cardiac arrest, shouts for nearby help, and activates the emergency response system by using his mobile device. He immediately begins performing high-quality CPR. Two additional rescuers immediately arrive to assist in the resuscitation attempt. What actions should occur next to support a team-based resuscitation attempt?
Two rescuers begin high-quality CPR while the third rescuer leaves to get the AED. What action supports 2-rescuer CPR?
While performing high-quality CPR on an adult, what action should you ensure is being accomplished?
A victim with a foreign-body airway obstruction becomes unresponsive. What is your first course of action?
"Members of the team know their boundaries and ask for help before the resuscitation attempt worsens." Match this statement with the most appropriate element of team dynamics listed.
You witness someone suddenly collapse. The person is unresponsive, you hear gasping sounds, and there is no pulse. You phone the local emergency response number. What should you do next?
