HEART ATTACK----- WHEN YOU ARE ALONE--WHAT TO Do

I hope everyone
can send this on as it is really important for
everyone to know!


1. Let's say it's
7:25pm and you're going home (alone of course)
after an unusually hard day on the job.


2. You're really
tired, upset and frustrated.


3. Suddenly you
start experiencing severe pain in your chest that
starts to drag out into your arm and up in to your
jaw.
You are only
about five km from the hospital nearest your home.


4. Unfortunately
you don't know if you'll be able to make it that
far.

5. You have been
trained in CPR, but the guy that taught the course did
not tell you how to perform it on yourself.


6. HOW TO SURVIVE A
HEART ATTACK WHEN ALONE?
Since many
people are alone when they suffer a heart 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.


7. 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.


8. 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 to regain a normal rhythm.
In this way,
heart attack victims can get help or to a hospital.


9. Tell as many
other people as possible about this. It could save
their lives!
