    Default How to survive a heart attack when alone

    Follow us on Social Media

    Let's say it's 6.15pm 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 drag 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..!!


    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.
    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.

    If you do suffer a heart attack the first thing to do is seek help. If you do manage to summon help and its on its way to you the best thing you can do while waiting is to sit on the floor with your back against a wall with your knees raised, this will reduce the workload on your heart.
