Cool.......good to know.
Hope I don't ever need it though.
HOW TO SURVIVE A HEART ATTACK ALONE
Let's say it's 6:15 p.m. and you're driving home (alone of course)
after an unusually hard day on the job. You're really tired, upset
Suddenly you start experiencing severe pain in your chest that starts
to radiate out into your arm and up into your jaw.
You are only about five miles from the hospital nearest your home;
unfortunately you don't know if you'll be able to make it that
far. What can you do?
You've been trained in CPR but the guy that taught the
course neglected to tell you how to perform it on yourself.
Since many people are alone when they suffer a heart attack, this article
seemed to be in order.
Without help, the person whose heart stops beating properly
and who begins to feel faint, has only about 10 seconds
left before losing consciousness.
However, these victims can help themselves by coughing repeatedly
and very vigorously.
A deep breath should be taken before each cough. The cough
must be deep and prolonged, as when producing sputum from
deep inside the chest. And a cough must be repeated about every 2 seconds
without let up until help arrives, or until the heart is
felt to be beating normally again.
Deep breaths get oxygen into the lungs and coughing movements
squeeze the heart and keep the blood circulating. The
squeezing pressure on the heart also helps it regain normal rhythm.
In this way, heart attack victims can get to a hospital.
Tell as many other people as possible about this, it could
save their lives!
