  2. A: When both a adult and infant are choking, you must ask him or her whether they can cough up the object or not. You must also try to remove the object from their airway. For adults, if they cannot cough it up, you must use abdominal thrusts immediately until the object is dislodged or until the victim becomes unconscious due to lack of oxygen. However, when a infant is choking, you must try to clear the infant's airway, turn the infant face down, and administer chest thrusts and back blows.
