    Lets say it 6:15 PM and your driving home after a hard day at work (alone of course) tired and frustrated :crazy: .
    .
    .
    .
    .
    .
    .
    your really stressed and upset :mad: .
    .
    .
    Suddenly you start experiencing sever pain that starts in your arm and up into your jaw. You are only five minutes from the hospital close to your home but you don't know if you can make it :eek1: .
    .
    .
    WHAT DO YOU DO???
    .
    .
    .
    .
    You've been trained in CPR but the guy that conducted the course never showed you how to perform it on yourself.

    HOW TO SURVIVE A HEART ATTACK WHEN YOUR ALONE
    Since many people suffer a heart attack when they are alone, without help,
    The person who's heart begins to beat irregularly and begins to feel faint.
    has only about 10 seconds before losing consciousness.
    .
    WHAT DO YOU DO?
    .
    .
    .
    ANSWER:
    Start coughing repeatedly and very vigorously.
    Take a deep breath between coughs
    The cough must be deep and prolonged'
    as well as producing sputum from deep inside the chest.
    .
    A breath and a cough must be repeated every two seconds without let-up until help arrives or until the heart beat is normal again.
    .
    .
    Deep breaths get oxygen into the blood and coughing keeps the blood circulating. The squeezing pressure on the heart also helps it regain normal rhythm. In this way, heart attack victims can get to the hospital.
    .
    Be a friend and pass this along. It could save your's or a friends life.
    THAT IS ALL. :bow:
    Too the brother Hood.
