How to survive a heart attack

This text is already a couple of weeks walking on facebook in the English version. Given the accident that happened to a friend of mine not long ago, I decided that I need to share this information with everyone - because of a heart attack no one is immune from us.

Attention! The information has not been verified. Use at your own risk, you should consult with your doctor!

Surviving a heart attack, if you are ALONE

It often happens that a heart attack happens to people when they are alone, with no one to help them. If you ever feel that your heart began to beat "wrong" and you are close to fainting, you have only about 10 seconds before you lose consciousness.

Meanwhile, all of the victims of heart attacks could help themselves. To do this, start to cough - many times and with great force. Every time before the cough, take a deep breath, a cough must be deep and prolonged, as if you spat phlegm from deep chest.

Breath and a cough must be repeated every 2 seconds without breaks and stops, until the arrival of medical help, or until such time as the heart starts beating again in a normal rhythm.

Deep breath allows oxygen to penetrate into the lungs and coughing movements "compress" the heart and make the blood circulate. This pressure on the heart also helps it to achieve its normal rhythm. Thus, victims of heart attacks get more time out to wait for the arrival of the doctors or get to the hospital. Tell that to the greatest number of people. It could save their lives!

Cardiologists say that if each of us to share this information with 10 people, at least one life could be saved.
