What do you do?
How does a person survive a heart attack when they are all alone?
- Don’t panic!
- Start coughing vigorously and continuosly
- Take a deep breath each time before you cough, your cough needs to be deep from the chest and prolonged!
- Your breath and cough need to alternate every two seconds without a break until help arrives or your heart stars beating normally again.
- Deep breaths bring oxygen to your heart and coughing sets the heart in motion and maintains blood circulation. Heart compression also helps in heart beat revival.
That way, victims of a heart attack can reach hospital. Don't think you are not subjectable to heart attack because you are 25 or 30 years old. Because of the change in our life styles, heart attack is a common phenomenon and affects all age groups!
