Hi everyone, Steve Moyse sent this information to me (he had received from his son). Please copy it and send on to all your family and friends – as it is really important for everyone to know!
Let’s say it’s 7:25pm and you’re going home (alone of course) after an unusually hard day at work.
You’re really tired, upset and frustrated. Suddenly you start experiencing severe pains in your chest that starts to drag out into your arm and up in to your jaw. You are about five miles from the nearest hospital. Unfortunately you don’t know if you’ll be able to make it that far. You have been trained in CPR, but the guy that taught the course did not tell you how to perform it on yourself.
THIS WILL HELP SURVIVE A HEART ATTACK WHEN ALONE?
Many people are alone when they suffer a heart attack. You are experiencing your heart beating irregularly and you begin to feel faint. You probably only have about 10 seconds left before losing consciousness.
However, you can help yourself by coughing repeatedly and very vigorously.
A deep breath should be taken before each cough and the cough must be deep and prolonged, just as you would 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 to regain a normal rhythm.
In this way, heart attack victims can get help or to a hospital.
Tell as many other people as possible about this. It could save their lives!
A cardiologist says, if everyone who gets this message and kindly sends it to 10 people, you can bet that we’ll save at least one life.
Rather than sending jokes, please …… contribute by forwarding this as an email, it can save a person’s life….
If this message comes around to you ……more than once…..please don’t get irritated….. you need to be happy that you have many friends who care about you and you are being reminded of how to tackle….Heart attacks…. when you are alone. I hope you never have to go through this yourself, but if you do, please let us know.
