Be Aware: Heart Attack

Posted on at

The information from which I had read today needs to be shared and so I am doing it right now. Few years ago my mom had a minor heart attack and I know that this is already a hereditary sickness of the family. I had been telling them to stop eating pork or maybe minimize it if they can’t really eliminate it in their diet but then it would still be helpful to be aware on the first aid steps to do in case this certain case happens.

Please do share this as well to your family members and friends.

The person who is experiencing symptoms of heart attack should do the following steps. 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 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 hospital.

Be aware, be educated. This can definitely save lives.
