How do I give rescue breaths to an unconscious choking infant?

  • Give 2 rescue breaths. -Tilt the head to a neutral position and seal your mouth over the infant's mouth and nose. If the breaths do not make the chest clearly rise, repeat cycles of chest compressions, foreign object check/removal and rescue breaths.
