Surviving a Heart Attack
say it's 9.00 p.m. and you're driving home alone,
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
nearest hospital. Unfortunately you don't know
if you'll be able to make it that far. You've
been trained in CPR but the person who taught
the course did not tell you how to perform it
Many people are alone when they suffer a heart
attack, without help, they have 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.
