KFB Health Talk: How To Survive A Heart Attack When You Are Alone




Hello Kfbers, we have got a very important topic today on Know Your Own Health. 
 
For the newbies, KFB Health Talk is a column where health–related issues are examined to help us get more conscious about our health.
Today, a guest, Dozie Kaidi Obiaku writes on how to survive a heart attack when alone.

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 sees this post shares it to 10 people, you can bet that we'll save
at least one life.
Rather than sharing jokes only, please contribute by forwarding this information which can save a person's life.
