40  WHAT IS THE ‘CHOKING GAME’?  I t's a generations old oxygen deprivation activity passed on by youth on play-grounds, the internet, at school, slumber par-ties, at camp, and from friends. The goal is a desired 'floaty', 'tingling', 'high' sensation accomplished through depriving the brain of oxygen. Not all participants are seeking a high, some play as a pass time, out of curiosity, or as a result of peer pressure. WHO IS ‘PLAYING”?  Unlike other risk-taking behaviors, oxygen deprivation activity (Choking Game) occurs across the spectrum of adolescents; Black, White, Hispanic, Asian, wealthy, low income and those in between. Some participants do not typically engage in risk taking behavior, while others are looking for an alternative ‘high’. Age 9 -16 is the common age. Both boy and girls participate. Males are more likely to participate alone and therefore have a higher fatality rate. It often begins among a group of teens and is then taken home by a solo player. CONSEQUENCES  Falling upon unconsciousness can result in brain injury and broken bones. Brain cells die when deprived of oxygen and do not regenerate. The lack of oxygen also causes short term memory loss, seizures, strokes, heart attack and retinal damage. If the pressure is not released, death will occur. Students participating in Tap Out/Choking Game on the school campus or school sponsored activities will receive disciplinary consequences. Tap Out 40

41   Lockers: A locker or other container provided by the school or the school district may be searched and examined with the permission of the principal to determine compliance with school regulations, school district regulations, and local, state, and federal laws.  Personal Property: The MSBSD and HHS are not responsible for damage, theft or loss of property on school grounds. Do not bring large sums of cash or other valuable items onto school grounds. Student Code of Conduct 41
