HOW TO SURVIVE A HEART ATTACK WHEN ALONE

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.

Β 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.

    This email is actually part true only:

    Darla Bonham, Mended Heart’s executive director, has since issued a statement about cough CPR: I’ve received email from people all across the country wanting to know if it is a valid medically approved procedure. I contacted a scientist on staff with the American Heart Association Emergency Cardiac Care division, and he was able to track a possible source of the information. The information comes from a professional textbook on emergency cardiac care. This procedure is also known as “cough CPR” and is used in emergency situations by professional staff. The American Heart Association does not recommend that the public use this method in a situation where there is no medical supervision.

    But cough CPR should be used only by a person about to lose consciousness, an indication of cardiac arrest, he cautions. Coughing can be dangerous for someone having a heart attack that does not result in cardiac arrest. Such a person should call for help and then sit quietly until help arrives, he says. In other words, the procedure might be the right thing to attempt or it might be the very thing that would kill the afflicted depending on which sort of cardiac crisis is being experienced. Without a doctor there to judge the situation and, if cough CPR is indicated, to supervise the rhythmic coughing, the procedure is just far too risky for a layman to attempt.

    ~ Thanks for the detail explanation, my Doctor wife :). So all in all it’s too risky to apply this procedure and it’s very difficult to judge the situation without the help of a Doctor. May Allah save us from these kind of situations.. Aameen

    Not to sound repetitive but this really is an informative post. I never in my life would have thought coughing would help you if you’re having a heart attack. Of course who is actually going to cough when you’re in so much pain? I’ll keep it in mind though.

House in Paradise!

Narrated AbuUmamah: The Prophet (peace_be_upon_him) said: I guarantee a house in the surroundings of Paradise for a man who avoids quarrelling even if he were in the right, a house in the middle of Paradise for a man who avoids lying even if he were joking, and a house in the upper part of Paradise for a man who made his character good.(Sunan Abu Dawood,Book 41, Number 4782)
