If doing the back blows right, what should you hear? You should hear a hollow sound.
If the item wasn't dislodged after the back blows, what next? You stand them back up and place yourself behind them again, find their naval and place two fingers above it, make a fist and place your thumb against the stomach, reach around with your other hand and hold the fist.
What do you do after you hold the fist? You give 5 quick upperthrust to the diaphragm.

When doing the Heimlich Maneuver what do you do? You continue doing the 5 back blows and 5 upperthrust until the item is dislodged, or the person becomes unconsious.
