THE FOLLOWING CAN ONLY BE DONE AFTER BEING TAUGHT BY A PROFESSIONAL. YOU SHOULD NOT, UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES, TRY THIS BY YOURSELF FOR THE FIRST TIME. IF DONE INCORRECTLY IT COULD WORSEN YOUR CONDITION. PLEASE REFER TO ANY QUALIFIED CARDIOLOGIST TO TEACH YOU THE TECHNIQUE OF “COUGH CPR” AND PRACTICE WITH HIM UNTIL HE FEELS YOU CAN DEAL WITH IT ON YOUR OWN. THIS METHOD HAS YET TO BE PROVEN SUFFICIENT WHEN PERFORMED BY THE PATIENT IN STRESSFUL CONDITIONS – IT HAS ONLY BEEN TESTED IN MEDICALLY CONTROLLED ENVIRONMENTS.

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!!
