It is no longer news that Heart Attack can manifest at any time. Unfortunately, it becomes worse for lone workers who suddenly develop it.
It is therefore imperative that everyone gets the right information and cascade same to the young and elderly as a measure to manage sudden heart attack when one is alone during such attacks.
Below is a tip that can help sustain such a situation till professional help comes along
Without help, the person whose heart stops beating properly and who begins to feel faint, has only about 10 seconds left before losing consciousness.
However, such a victim can help him or herself 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 phone and, between breaths, call for help.
