If the victim is an infant, place him facedown on one of your forearms, with his head lower than his body. Support his head. Give five quick back blows, then turn the infant over and give five quick chest thrusts (similar to those given during cardiopulmonary resuscitation [CPR]—see page 32). Perform the Heimlich maneuver (Figure 11). Position yourself behind the victim and encircle him with your arms, clasping your hands in a fist in the upper abdomen just below his ribs.

The drug should be released (canister pressed down or “triggered”) at the beginning of a deep inspiration.
