It is a fact that a heart attack cannot be predicted, and if you’re lucky you might never experience anything like that. But, there are some useful advice that can possibly save your life if you experience an eminent heart attack.
We really hope that you’ll never have to apply this advice we’re about to share, but of course, it’s always good to know how you can help yourself or someone else in such an unfortunate situation, before the ambulance arrives.
Unluckily, most of us panic and don’t know what to do when we suspect myocardial infarction, which causes us to fall into unconsciousness in a matter of seconds.
Bear in mind, although you just have a few seconds to react there is something you can do, which can be potentially life-saving.
You however, first of all, you have to call an ambulance, as it’s crucial. After calling professional help you have to start coughing forcefully!
In other words, start coughing deep and strong and don’t stop, in a period of two seconds, extending the exhale. Believe it or not, but this can save your life or the life of someone you care about.
In addition, here is a video demonstrating the correct coughing technique in such a situation.
When taking deep breaths you actually bring oxygen to your lungs and the coughing pressures the heart as well as keeps the circulation flowing. Moreover, it brings the sinus rhythm back to normal and remember that it is the most important thing to keep the person alive until professional help arrives.
