If you are anything like me you have a network of friends who can have a vast array of very interesting knowledge to share. To that end I am always pleasantly surprised to receive through my network reminders of information I may have learned many years ago (some during my time in the military), which has been filed, in my memory bank.
I was again reminded of some such information held in my archives that I think is an important life saving technique.
I think you may find it useful too. So pause for 2 minutes and read on: It could save your life
I recently received a message from Kev, a good friend of mine who I served in the Army with.
His message was along the lines:
Just imagine it’s 7.25pm and you’re on your way home after an unusually hard day on the job.
You’re really tired, upset and frustrated. And you are wondering how can you change your life now because you are fed up with the same stuff different day routine. Does that ring any bells with you?
Then suddenly without warning you are experiencing a severe pain in your chest and the pain then starts to drag out into your arm and up in to your jaw. You realise you are only about five kilometres from the hospital nearest your home.
Worrying because you don’t know if you’ll be able to make it that far.
Even though you have been trained in CPR. The one thing the guy didn’t teach you on the course was how to perform it on yourself.
Since many people are alone when they suffer a heart attack and without help, if your heart starts beating improperly and you begin to feel faint, you only have about 10 seconds left before losing consciousness. Isn’t that a frightening thought?
SO HOW DO YOU SURVIVE A HEART ATTACK WHEN YOU ALONE?
THERE ARE FOUR MAGICAL STEPS
This is the first and a very important part in the sequence. You must Cough repeatedly and very vigorously.
Equally important you need to take a deep breath before each cough, and your cough must be deep and prolonged, as when producing sputum from deep inside the chest.
Finally, Your breath and a cough must be repeated about every two seconds without let-up until help arrives, or until you feel your heart beating normally again.
STEP FOUR – THE SCIENCE
You see, deep breaths get oxygen into your lungs and coughing movements squeezes your heart and keep the blood circulating. The squeezing pressure on your heart also helps it regain normal rhythm. In this way, if you have a heart attack you can have a much better chance to get to a hospital.
Now that you are motivated – Tell as many other people as possible about this. It could save their lives too!!
