    I am a mom and have 1 year old baby who constantly pick things on the floor and put it in her mouth. I was worried about the bacteria she could get but never really thought about choking until your title caught my attention. It made me very alert now lol. Infographics are of so much help thanks 🙂

    This is an incredibly informative post. I would not have guessed that there was such a high percentage of 10-14-year-olds who die from choking, out of choking deaths overall among children. It makes sense when you think about it, though, because we tend to keep a closer eye on the very little ones, as opposed to the older kids, and choking can occur so quickly.

    The infographic really is a helpful way to present the info. Thanks for the useful post!

    Providing a concise overview and the infographic is definitely useful for parents to heavily take into consideration. There’s nothing worse than seeing a child not being able to receive proper help should the event of choking ever arise.

    And it’s good that the infographic informed how one should still be careful and not pass off the “okay” signs of breathing for any potential ineffective breathing that may come along. This and other aspects such as making sure small objects are clearly away from the child is what can reduce the probability of having to deal with those circumstances.

    Thanks for providing these tips and overview of signs to be aware of, this will definitely be a resource for all parents to utilize as a contingency measure.

    This was amazingly helpful. I am glad you posted this.
    I remember learning this when I first got certified in CPR years ago in high school. They’ve changed the process so much since then and it has barely been ten years.
    Your info is up to date and that’s comforting for me. Knowing that I know what to do is very reassuring.

    Thank you for the great info! Choking is always my biggest fear with my toddler, but I never even thought about it with my older kids. I had no idea 65% of choking deaths were of children in that age range! I would have thought it was smaller children.

    Choking is one of the most common things within children from the age of 10-14 Years Old.
