A heart attack proves fatal to anyone, regardless of your age and condition. Once this happens to a person, the best thing to do is send him to the hospital. But what if this happens to you and you have no one else around to seek for help? What you should do is take an aspirin, then call 911. This maybe the only thing you could do for the moment.
There’s another option, though, and it may be a real life-saver, though it should only be done by people who have abnormal heart rhythms. Coughing while having a heart attack could extend your life. Some experts refer to this as ‘self-CPR’. It still isn’t recommended for the public by some experts, but if you really have no other option, it may be worth the risk.
