Smoke Inhalation Treatment
Self-Care at Home
Remove the person with smoke inhalation from the scene to a location with clean air.
Make sure that you are not putting yourself in danger before you attempt to pull someone from a smoke-filled environment. If you would be taking a serious risk to help the person, wait for trained professionals to arrive at the scene.
If necessary, CPR should be initiated by trained bystanders until emergency medical help arrives.
