HOW TO SURVIVE A HEART ATTACK WHEN ALONE

Let’s say it’s 6.15p m and you’re going home (alone of
course), after an unusually hard day on the job.

You’re really tired, upset and frustrated…

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. You have 

been trained in CPR, but the guy that taught the

course did not tell you how to perform it on yourself.

HOW TO SURVIVE A HEART ATTACK WHEN ALONE

Since many people are alone when they suffer a hear

attack, without help, the person whose heart is beating

improperly 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, and the cough must be deep

and prolonged, as when producing sputum from deep inside the chest. 

A breath and a cough must be repeated about every two 

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!!

A cardiologist says if everyone who gets this mail sends it to 10 people;

you can bet that we’ll save at least one life.

Rather sending jokes pls contribute by forwarding this mail
which can save a person’s life….
