Valuable Piece of information

Let's say it's 6.15p m and you're going home
(alone of course), after an unusually hard day
on the job. You're really tired, upset and

Suddenly you start experiencing severe pain
in your chest that starts to adiate 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
but the guy that taught the
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.

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