A heart attack is the death of a segment of heart muscle caused by the loss of blood supply. It is something that people face with every day. Now, this occurrence cannot be prognosticated, so we hope that each one of you never experiences this kind of feel. But, if you ever get in the same situation it is important that you understand what’s happening and to know what to do. Watching this video will help you learn that.
These advice are needed to know as you can really help one in an unfortunate situation before the ambulance arrives and save yours or someone’s life. It is also crucial to remember that the patient’s survival depends largely on how quickly they can be taken to the hospital.
Your fist instinct will normally be to panic because the person will fall into unconsciousness in a matter of seconds. But, even though you just have a few seconds to react there is something you can do, which can be potentially life-saving.
Remember to call an ambulance first! Continue to try to communicate calmly with the person, even though you may be nervous and upset. You don’t want to add to the victim’s anxiety and cause them to produce more adrenalin, which can be harmful in this situation. If you have one on hand, give the person one 325 milligrams (preferably uncoated) aspirin to chew and swallow. An aspirin can help break up the blood clot that is causing the heart attack.
