Advice on what you can do if you feel a heart attack coming on

Let's say it's 6.15pm and you're driving home (alone of course) after an unusually hard day at the office You're really tired and frustrated……

YOU ARE REALLY STRESSED AND 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 five miles from the hospital nearest your home. Unfortunately you don't know if you'll be able to make it that far

WHAT TO DO ??? YOU HAVE BEEN TRAINED IN CPR, BUT THE GUY THAT CONDUCTED 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 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 WHAT TO DO ??

ANSWER: DO NOT PANIC, BUT START 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 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

DOING THIS BUYS TIME FOR A HEART ATTACK VICTIM TO GET TO A HOSPITAL
