Having a heart attack when no one is around to help

still under revue. proceed with caution as with everything else.

Having a heart attack when no one is around to help

This was sent to me by one of my physician friends.
Please pass on this information to as many friends and family members as possible.

What would or could you do if you had a heart attack while you are alone?

If you've already received this, it means people are caring about you.

The staff of Johnson City Medical Center actually discovered this and did an in-depth study on it in our ICU.

The two individuals that discovered this then wrote an article about it, had it published and have had it incorporated into ACLS and CPR classes. It is very true and has and does work.

It is called "COUGH CPR".

If everyone who receives this sends it to ten people, you can bet that we'll save at least one life.

This information could help you to save YOUR own life!

Let's say it's 6:15 p.m. And you're driving home
(alone of course), after a usually 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.

What can you do?

You've been trained in CPR but the guy that taught the course didn't tell you what to do if it happened to 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 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 bringing up mucus 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!
