HOW TO SURVIVE A HEART ATTACK WHEN ALONE
Let’s say it’s 6.15pm and you’re going home (alone of course), after an unusually hard day on the job. You’re really tired, upset and frustrated. Suddenly you start experiencing severe pain in your chest that starts to drag out into your arm and up into your jaw. You are only about five miles from the hospital nearest your home. Unfortunately you don’t know if you’ll be able to make it that far. You have been trained in CPR, but the guy that taught the course did not tell you how to perform it on yourself..!!
NOW HOW TO SURVIVE A HEART ATTACK WHEN ALONE…
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, and the cough must be 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 perhaps buy precious time to get themselves to a phone and dial 911.

also: heart attack symptoms for women/trans men/dfab people are often different than the ones listed here! it’s more common for them to have jaw, neck, arm, stomach, or back pain, and they tend to experience more of an uncomfortable squeezing or fullness in the chest rather than crushing pain. other more common symptoms include heart palpitations, fatigue, shortness of breath, sweating, and nausea. these symptoms are often overlooked by those experiencing a heart attack because they deviate so much from the more well-known symptoms, often leading them to delay treatment and potentially put their life at further risk. make sure you know these facts in case you or a loved one will need them in the future!
I am white. I will never understand what oppression is like. I will never be subjected to systematic racism. I will never be gunned down simply for being alive. I will never fully understand.
But I WILL add my voice to those already crying out. I WILL stand with them. I WILL do everything I can to help change the world we live in.
I am white. But I will not be silent.
I’m actually really upset because after two weeks of being gone, my computer feels so foreign to me.
apparently it’s nineteen fucking twenty
This really irks me because my friend and I were building gate pieces for the nighttime program of this camporee and a bunch of other kids were sent over to help us out. One guy took the other drill and said, “Here, we (he and the other male in the group) can take over from here.” My friend didn’t stop drilling and didn’t hand her drill to the other guy, and said, “I think we’ve got it guys.” And what would you know, every screw that boy screwed in was messed up and didn’t hold together while every screw that we put in held nice and tight. Boys need to stop underestimating girls. Girls are intelligent and capable. Girls are not weak and do not need your help.
