I got this in an email. Always useful information....pass it on and save lives!
Since many people are alone
When they suffer a heart attack, without help, the person whose heart is beating
Improperly 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,
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. Tell as many
Other people as possible about this.
It could save their lives! "

Unfortunately, I have it.
