Take a situation like this it is beautiful evening after a long days work and you’re going home alone , after an unusually hard day on the job. You will be really tired, upset and frustrated.
Suddenly you start experiencing severe pain in your chest that starts from your arm and up into your jaw. You are only about five miles from the hospital that is near to your home. Unfortunately you don’t know if you’ll be able to make it that far.
CPR [Cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) It's an emergency medical procedure for a victim of cardiac arrest or, in some circumstances, respiratory arrest. CPR is performed in hospitals, or in the community by laypersons or by emergency response professionals] , 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 vigerously 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 one, 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 of the heart beat. 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!!
