Hope Ive put this in the correct place.

Valuable Piece of information

Let's say it's 6.15pm and you're going home (alone of course), 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 hospital nearest your home. 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.

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 gets this mail 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 mail which can save a person's life....If this message comes around you ...........more than once.....please don't get irritated......YOU need to be happy that you are being reminded of how to tackle....Heart attacks....AGAIN...

A friend of ours in the UK died over the weekend of a heart attack (51, non-smoker, non-drinker)- He has been on our minds a lot this weekend.

This information could save lives.

Hi, this is an urban myth email which has been circulating the internet since 1999.

This text is from the Cornwall &
Isles of Scilly NHS Trust website

Cardiac arrest
An email is currently circulating the internet that gives advice about stopping a cardiac arrest by coughing. This advice is not endorsed by this PCT. Please see Resuscitation UK for more information.
