“..Before we start, the very first thing you should do is call for emergency help (or if someone else is around make sure they call 911). Then, while you’re waiting, see what you can do to help the person. Also, make your safety a priority too. As flight attendants emphasize before takeoff, when the oxygen mask comes down, you have to secure yours first—otherwise you’re of no use to anyone else.

What are some common causes of choking in an adult? sharecare.com
“..if a conscious adult is choking, his or her airway has been blocked by a foreign object, such as a piece of food or a small toy; by swelling in the mouth or throat; or by fluids, such as vomit or blood.
Common causes of choking include:
Trying to swallow large pieces of poorly chewed food.
Drinking alcohol before or during meals. (Alcohol dulls the nerves that aid swallowing.)
Wearing dentures. (Dentures make it difficult to sense whether food is fully chewed before it is swallowed.)
Eating while talking excitedly or laughing, or eating too fast.
Walking, playing or running with food or objects in the mouth.

EpiPen Alternatives Exist, and They May be Cheaper
By Rachael Rettner, Senior Writer | August 26, 2016 06:29pm ET livescience.com
“…But in recent years, the price of the EpiPen has increased dramatically, from $100 in 2007 to a current price of $600 for a two-pack, according to The New York Times. This price increase may limit access to the drug for people who need it, said U.S. Senator Charles Grassley of Iowa, who sent a letter this week to Mylan, the manufacturer of EpiPen, asking about the drug’s pricing. And although health insurance may cover the drug, people with certain insurance plans, such as high-deductible plans, may have to pay the full price, according to USA Today.
But there is a cheaper alternative to the EpiPen, called Adrenaclick, which can be found at Walmart and Sam’s Club for as little as $142 with a coupon, according to Consumer Reports. Adrenaclick provides the same medication, at the same doses, as the EpiPen, according to Adrenaclick’s website. There’s also a generic version of Adrenaclick, called “epinephrine injection, USP auto-injector.” (There is no generic version of the EpiPen.)
However, the method of administering Adrenaclick or its generic version is a little different from that for the EpiPen; for example, Adrenaclick has two caps that need to be removed, while EpiPen has only one cap.
For this reason, it’s important that users learn precisely how to use whichever device they have, the American Academy of Allergy, Asthma & Immunology (AAAAI) said.
“The stress of an anaphylactic reaction is not the time to realize you have a different auto-injector than what was demonstrated to you by your allergist,” AAAAI said.
Another brand of epinephrine auto-injector, called Auvi‑Q, was recalled last year because it was found to deliver potentially inaccurate doses of epinephrine, according to the Food and Drug Administration. It is no longer on the market….”
“Published on Jan 12, 2017
CVS says it will charge $109.99 for a two-pack of the authorized generic version of Adrenaclick, a lesser-known treatment compared to EpiPen.”

Types of Shock
There are several different types of shock that are all severely life-threatening if left untreated. The following are the types of shock:
Hypovolemic shock: caused by great volume losses of blood and fluids
Cardiogenic shock: linked to heart problems
Anaphylactic shock: caused by a severe allergic reaction
Septic shock: linked to body infections
Neurogenic shock: caused by damage to the nervous system
First Aid Management for Shock
A person should call for emergency medical services immediately for symptoms of shock. While waiting for the paramedics, apply first aid to help avoid complications from developing. The following steps are generally recommended:
Call for emergency medical services immediately or have someone drive the victim to the nearest emergency room.
Check the victim’s circulation, airway and breathing. If necessary, initiate rescue breathing and CPR.
Constant check rate of breathing every five minutes even if the victim is capable of breathing on his or her own.
If the victim is conscious with no injury to the head, neck, spine or leg, lay the person down flatly with the feet elevated about 12 inches to increase circulation. The head should not be elevated. This is called the shock position. However, if there is a suspected head, neck, back, or leg injury, do not move the individual’s position unless there is danger in the immediate environment.
If there is bleeding, broken bones or other injuries, apply appropriate first aid.
Keep the person warm by covering with a blanket or coat. Loosen any tight clothing.
If there is no injury, turn the victim’s head to the side to avoid choking. If there is a suspected spinal injury, hold the person’s head, neck and back in a line and roll the victim to the side as a unit.
