A HEART ATTACK
This is a simple yet
useful piece of help. I have wondered myself what I would do if I were to
have a heart attack while alone. I got food poisoning once at a customers
home while tuning their piano, and I thought for a while that I was going to die.
It is fearful to be alone and feel bad, so this is good help. Older
folks who are alone will appreciate this. You younger pastors who are not
getting information like this out should be ashamed. You are the type who
will get very concerned after YOU turn 55, right. Why not get your act together
NOW. Live longer and serve the Lord longer.
Surviving a Heart Attack
Please pass this on to your family
I sincerely hope no one encounters this situation in
their life time but just in case. This one is serious...
it's 4:17 p.m. and you're driving home, (alone of course) after an unusually hard
day on the job. Not only was the work load extraordinarily heavy, you also had
a disagreement with your boss, and no matter how hard you tried he just wouldn't
see your side of the situation. You're really upset and the more you think about
it the more up tight you become. All of a sudden you start experiencing severe
pain in your chest that starts to radiate out into your arm and up into your jaw.
You are only about five miles from the hospital nearest you home, unfortunately
you don't know if you'll be able to make it that far. What can you do?
You've been trained in CPR but the guy that taught the course neglected to
tell you how to perform it on yourself. HOW TO SURVIVE A HEART ATTACK WHEN ALONE
(Since many people are alone when they suffer a heart attack, this article seemed
in order.) Without help the person whose heart stops beating properly 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.
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 phone and, between breaths,
call for help.
Tell as many other people as possible about this, it
could save their lives!

It has been stated by a kind of heart official that
an attack by a slowing beat and faintness would be helped by this technique. If
the heart is beating rapidly, the coughing might actually cause trouble. So,
take your pulse at once and decide what you should do. Once again, litigation
looms over anyone passing on non-kosher news on survival. What is really
the problem here is that the medical profession might just miss a chance to bill
you for surviving. Nevertheless; disclaimer applies :-) I sometimes
have tachecardia, which is a spike of rapid heart beat. I can slow my heart down,
and lower my blood pressure, which is the deadly part in these attacks, by deep
slow breathing. Keep it up, and the heart will slow some to a lot.
your heart skips beats or is irregular, I would not use the above techniques.
The skips occasionally are usually not serious. Erratic heart beat can be very
serious if it lasts any time at all or comes back over and over-- see a doctor.
Also, what did you just eat? Did you poison yourself? Call 911 at once if you
thing so. Charismatic demonic events can cause heart troubles, very serious ones.
Devils love to kill people. A Benny Hinn rally is the last place a person with
heart trouble should be found.
