We can’t predict when heart attacks occur, but we can train ourselves in case it happens to us and our loved ones.

The method we’ll talk about is called “Cough-CPR.” From the word itself, you’ll need to cough to keep your heart pumping.

When you have a heart attack, the first thing you must do is call an ambulance. Cough-CPR won’t completely stop heart attack, but it will keep the heart functioning until the emergency response team arrives.

During a sudden arrhythmia (abnormal heart rhythm), it may be possible for a conscious, responsive person to cough forcefully and repetitively to maintain enough blood flow to the brain to remain conscious for a few seconds until the arrhythmia is treated. Blood flow is maintained by increased pressure in the chest that occurs during forceful coughs. This is not a form of traditional resuscitation.

After calling an ambulance, inhale deeply and cough five times quickly.

The video below will demonstrate how the cough should be like.

Don’t forget to share this. You might save someone’s life. Again this will NOT STOP A HEART ATTACK, it will help keep the heart functioning until the response team arrive.
