Let’s say it’s 7.25pm and you’re going home after an unusually hard day on the job. You’re really tired, upset and frustrated.
Suddenly you start experiencing severe pain in your chest that starts to drag out into your arm and up into your jaw. You are only 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 who taught the course did not tell you how to perform it on yourself.
1. 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.
2. HELP YOURSELF!
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, 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, you can save yourself until you get to help.
This cardiologist recommended methods is very much in line with the teachings of my 'Feel Good, All Day, Every Day' teachings.
Hope you're having a 'Feel Good' day.
