Prediction of heart attack is nearly impossible; the body might give some signs before it actually happens but it cannot be determined for sure.

It is very important to know this useful advice because it might save your life one day, if you ever find yourself facing imminent heart attack.

Hopefully you will never need to use this advice. Most people when they suspect myocardial infarction panic and don’t know what to do. Even though you only have a few seconds in a scenario like this, you can use that few seconds to save your life.

First thing you need to do is call an ambulance. After that start coughing forcefully! Start coughing deep and strong; don’t stop, in a period of two seconds, extending the exhale. This can save your life or the life of someone you care about.

In the video below you can see how you need to use the coughing technique in such a situation.

The reason why you need to do this is because when you’re taking deep breaths you send oxygen into your lungs and the coughing pressures the heart and keeps the circulation flowing. This pressure on the heart will bring the sinus rhythm back to normal and this is the most important thing to keep the person alive until the ambulance arrive.
