I am not a pass along e-mail kind of person but when it is related to health.... you just never know when it might help someone. Please read the following which was sent to me and I am now forwarding it onto you. Hope you never have to use this technique of course but education to situations always helps.

Love and Blessings, Margaret and JohnHEART ATTACK SELF HELPThis is NOT a chain letter.

Let's say it's 6:15 p.m. and you're driving home (alone of course),

cough must be deep and prolonged, as when producing sputum from deep
inside the chest.
Deep 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
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,

Tell as many other people as possible about this, it could save their
