Sunday Sermon

Tomorrow is Valentines Day.
Valentines Day is all about matters of the heart.
The title of this blog is just breathe....
With that in mind, the following is my Valentine gift to all those who come this way.


HOW TO SURVIVE A HEART ATTACK WHEN ALONE


Since many people are alone when they suffer a heart attack, this article seemed in order. Without help the person who's heart stops beating properly and who begins to feel faint, has only about 10 seconds 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 letting up until help arrives, or until the heart is felt to be beating normally again. Deep breaths get oxygen into the lungs. 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 get to a phone and, between breaths, call for help.

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

Wow, who knew, when I suggested everyone just breathe deeply, I was telling them how they might one day save their own life!
I'd like to thank my daughter Kasey for telling me about this.
Thanks sweety!!
