It means abdominal bursts. It is used when people choke some object in their wind pipe. A person may die due to suffocation if object is not removed from wind pipe.
In heimlich maneuver:
stand up behind the person.
Lean the person forward and give some blows with your fist.
Place your arms around the waist.
Make a fist and place it above the navel, thumb side in.
Grab the fist with your other hand and push it inward and upward at the same time. Perform repeatedly until object is expelled.
