Heart attack can happen suddenly and unexpectedly and if you have previously suffered one or have a predisposition, this information can be life-saving. Even if you don’t have a history of this condition in the family, it’s still good to know what to do in this situation. It can help you or someone close to you and it can save a life.
If your heart starts beating faster and irregular, if you start feeling unwell you only have ten seconds before you lose consciousness and just a ten seconds window to react and prevent a dangerous condition.
This is what you need to do to save your life:
If you want to prevent fainting you need to start coughing vigorously for a few seconds. Take a deep breath before every cough, and the cough must be deep and prolonged. You need to take a deep breath and cough every two seconds until help arrives or your heart starts beating normal again. When you take a deep breath you bring oxygen to your lungs and the strong cough maintains the blood flow to your heart.
Learning this method can help heart attack victims to get to the hospital in time and get proper medical care before it’s too late. But before you do anything call 911 and while help is on the way practice this method in order to stay conscious and prevent a serious condition.
