How to Survive Cardiac Arrest

Have you ever experienced severe pain in your chest that starts to radiate out into your arm and up into your jaw. Even if you are at five minutes drive from the nearest hospital you can’t afford to reach there. You don’t know to what and how to perform on yourself for immediate rescue.

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!! A cardiologist says if everyone who reads this article out of 10 people; we’ll save at least one life.
