I was a Weblow cub scout leader and had the boys away at camp when a ten year old boy came to me having a severe asthma attack and said he didn’t have his inhaler. We were fairly remote and there was no way to quick get him medical help.
I have never done this previously, or since, but I placed my hand on this boys stomache and pressed in, while telling him to inhale and push my hand outward with his stomache. In 3 or 4 breathes, his attack was gone. I was as amazed as he was that it worked.
Would something like that require a person pushing on the stomach?
