How to use "Choke up" in context?

When someone experiences a choking hazard, their first instinct is to try and clear their airway. The problem is that often times, this is not the best course of action. In a situation where someone has difficulty breathing, grabbing their throat and trying to shove their mouth open can actually cause more harm than good.

Choking can happen from a number of causes, from a piece of food getting lodged in someone's throat to a foreign object blocking the airway.
