carotid pulse, if no pulse, start CPR
checking pulse location for child
carotid pulse, if no pulse or pulse is less than 60 bpm with signs or poor perfusion, start CPR

a choking victim
will not be able to cough forcefully
"clearing the victim" means
making sure no one is touching the victim

for an UNresponsive choking infant
you will stop giving back slaps and will begin CPR
