How to Survive a Heart Attack When Alone
You are going home (alone) after an unusually hard day on the job. You
are really tired. Suddenly, you start experiencing severe pain in your chest
that starts to drag out into your arm and up to your jaw. You are only about
4 miles from the hospital nearest your home. Unfortunately, you don’t
know if you will be able to make it that far.
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. 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.
