CPR ON YOURSELF........................(different!!)
1 Let's say it's 7.25pm and you're going home (alone of course) after an
unusually hard day on the job.
2 You're really tired, upset and frustrated.
3 Suddenly you start experiencing severe pain in your chest that starts
to drag out into your arm and up in to your jaw. You are only about five
miles from the hospital nearest your home.
4 Unfortunately you don't know if you'll be able to make it that far.
5 You have been trained in CPR, but the guy that taught the course did
not tell you how to perform it on yourself.
6 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.
7 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
8 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.
