Heart attack is one of the most common causes of death among the population. No one is safe from a heart attack, regardless of age.
Often, however, a heart attack happens unexpectedly when we are alone and panic instead of acting. Today we will give you valuable advice on how to help yourself in a heart attack to survive until the ambulance arrives.
If you have a heart attack, the first thing we recommend is, of course, try to call an ambulance. Whether you succeed or not, your next step will be the following: cough as long as possible. Take a deep breath before doing so. The deeper the breath, the stronger and longer you can cough, which is extremely important.
When you inhale, you let air enter your lungs, and a cough compresses the heart, pushing out the blood and making it move. By creating such a burden on the heart, you help it return to its normal rhythm of work.
Keep inhaling and coughing every 2 seconds until an ambulance arrives or until your heart returns to normal so you can get to the nearest hospital.
