Heart attack diagram
Heart attack while alone
Heart attack or Cardiac stroke is a common disease and a severe health problem. This is a cardio-vascular disease caused by obstacle in blood supply in the human heart. It can be proved fatal if proper medical care is not obtained during a heart attack. It is a threat to survival. It is difficult to get medical care in a situation of heart attack while alone.
Let us assume a situation. Some one is returning back home, of course alone, after an unusually tiring day. Many things have gone wrong and he or she has got a negative mindset. He or she is really tired, upset and frustrated.
Suddenly the person starts experiencing severe pain in his or her chest that starts to adiate out into arms and up into jaw. The nearest hospital is miles away. Unfortunately the person does not know if he or she will be able to make it that far. The person has been trained in CPR, but the guy that taught the course did not tell how to perform it self.
He is in crisis. A health crisis that may lead him or her to death if proper medical care is not obtained. He needs a cardiologist badly but no cardiologist is near by!
What can the poor fellow do at that time?

Suffering Heart Attack While Alone
Many people suffer a heart attack or cardiac stroke while alone. Many times the person has only about ten to fifteen seconds left before losing consciousness. It is very difficult for the person to survive without proper medical help. Unfortunately, most of the times in this type of situation, they are unable to get proper medical help.
Thousands of deaths occur every year all over the world in this type of situations. This comes suddenly and it is almost impossible to predict when and where a person faces a cardiac stroke or heart attack. It is also not possible that a person will not move or live alone.
This can be happened to any one and at any place. No matter he or she is an American, an English, Australian, a French or Chinese. No matter where he or she is. It may happen in India, America, UK, Canada, Brazil or any where else.
We don't want to see this but this happens again and again. It will be better if we know what to do at this critical time, at an emergency. Some simple exercise can save a life, so knowing this is better.

Is there any way for them to survive?
I have got a simple tip to follow from Mr. Kuldeep Kothari, a chartered accountant in Delhi, India. I would like to reproduce the same that may help some.
These victims can help themselves by coughing vigorously and repeatedly. They should take a deep breath before each cough. The cough should be deep and prolonged. It should be like producing sputum from deep inside the chest. They have to repeat deep breath and vigorous cough again and again continually till getting proper medical help. Sometimes heart starts beating normally again even without medical help while applying this process.
Human heart continually pump blood to and fro lungs and body through veins and artery. It maintains supply of oxygen through out the body cells. Blood also brings Carbon-di-oxide from body cells to the lungs and exhales it. Blood supply disrupts in cardiac stroke. Human heart damages severely in cardiac stroke (heart attack). This affect is generally of permanent nature. It also affects ejection fractioning of the heart (efficiency of pumping blood). Severe heart attack may lead to fatal cardiac arrest.
Deep breaths enhance oxygen supply into the lungs and coughing squeezes the heart that keeps blood circulating. The squeezing pressure on the heart also helps it regain normal rhythm. The victims can get time to reach hospital or at least to get help from other persons in this way.
A simple acupressure technique can also be helpful. One has to press his or her nails of ring finger in left hand. There will be pain. However, one has to bear that for survival. The process may be repeated to left foot. This acupressure reduces blood pressure and stop cardiac attack.
I request readers to tell as many people as possible about this process. It can save their lives!!
