Breathing emergencies block the airway in a casualty and are life threatening. They can occur during an accident or a sudden illness.

A breathing emergency can frighten a casualty and worsen his situation if the first aider does not provide prompt care.

This module explains how to recognize the breathing emergencies in a casualty and the basics of providing care to a casualty with a breathing difficulty. The module will also explain how to care for a casualty experiencing a respiratory distress and respiratory arrest.
