Procedure for opening airway in babies under 1 year


Before you start: 
Make sure that you have:
• Checked for consciousness but had no response.

1. Tilt head back
• Place one hand on the baby’s forehead, then tilt the head by pressing on the forehead.

2. Remove any obstruction
• Pick out any obvious obstruction in the mouth with your fingertips.

3. Lift chin
• Place one finger of the other hand under the chin and lift it gently.
• Tilt the head slightly. If you tilt it too far, you may block the airway again. Check breathing.
