Just heard about this technique and was rather impressed.

This could just SAVE YOUR LIFE.

Pass it on to all your friends.

The only easy day was yesterday.

That sound impressive, but there is more to it.

I don't want to burst anyones bubble, but please read the following concerning this. (My position is, try it if you want to. It might work for you.)

http://www.snopes.com/medical/homecure/coughcpr.asp

From the American Heart Association:
http://www.mendedhearts.org/education-cough-cpr.htm

Also, be aware that women tend to have different symptoms of heart attack than men do. A woman may not feel the chest pain, and may not be aware that she is actually having a heart attack.

Thanks folks.

That little gem came from a newsletter I receive from Senior2Senior which is a mine of health info for individuals and caregivers. If you are interested, check it out. (Us oldies have to stick together :thumbsup: )

Nice, those techniques will help a lot of people.
I think the old people who live alone gets a little watch with a button which will send a signal to the ambulance and the ambulance will come for their assistance of a heart attack or whatever.
