Keep the air passages clear by turning the head toone side, opening the patients mouth and clearing it of water, saline mucus or blood, a lot of which might haveaccumulated in the back of the throat.
If the jaw is rigid try to force the mouth open by pressure on the gum behind the last molar tooth of thelower jaw. When the upper air passages are thus cleared,tilt the head backward and force the jaw forwards fromthe angles of the jaw in front of the ears. This would prevent mechanical obstructions to the upper ai passages.
Then hold the chin up and forward with one handand pinch the nostrils of the victim with the other.
Take a very deep breath and apply your mouth tothat of the victim and blow into his mouth, until thechest of the victim moves up indicating filling of thelungs (Never allow the chin to sag)
When the chest has moved up, withdraw your mouthand allow the chest to sink back. REPEAT this processevery three to four seconds until the victim begins to breathe again or until he is taken over by a medicalattendant. This method can be continued in anambulance during transit of the patient from the site of accident to the nearest medical center.
Have some one else to send for a doctor.
Keep patient warms and loosen his clothing.
Do not give liquids until the patient becomesconscious.
