Most people usually panic and don’t know what to do when they suspect myocardial infarction. Then they fall into unconsciousness in a matter of seconds. But, even though you just have a few seconds to react there is something you can do, which can be potentially life-saving.
Remember to call an ambulance first! After you’ve called professional help you need to start coughing forcefully!
Start coughing deep and strong and don’t stop, in a period of two seconds, extending the exhale. This can save your life or the life of anyone around you.
In this video, we’re going to show you the proper coughing technique in such a situation.
This is how the process goes: when you’re taking deep breaths you send oxygen into your lungs and the coughing pressures the heart and keeps the circulation flowing. This pressure on the heart will bring the sinus rhythm back to normal and you’ll be able to save your life or the life of someone around you! This is the most important thing to keep the person alive until professional help arrives!
