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.

this was removed from tumbrl due to “violating one or more of Tumblr’s Community Guidelines”, but since my wish came true the first time, I’m putting it back. :)
I wasn’t planning on spending $300 on freeing my car and replacing its wheel, and it’s really put me in a spot.
I can’t really afford food, and rent will be very close this month. I’m already coping with a fair amount of issues, and this stuff being piled on top is keeping me at a constant breaking point.
I could really use financial help from gracious strangers. Please consider signal boosting if you don’t have the means or interest in donating.
thank you <3
This poor little puppy is set to be euthanised (by heartstick, which is very painful and terrifying) this week and hasn’t had much interest in him because of his wounds. He needs money donated into his fund for a rescue to pull him from this VERY high kill shelter where the dog can THEN be adopted from. Sadly pit bull mixes in Georgia can only be adopted from a rescue centre and if this dog receives his funds a rescue will be willing to rescue him! For more information and pictures and updates check out https://facebook.com/profile.php?id=339511346067908 and please reblog this and donate by clicking the link below if you can! Even $1 isn’t too little!
We see so many neglected dogs here, and Phil is one of those babies. He looks to be under a year old, but he’s seen things beyond his years. Phil has no fur in spots, and scabs, and a swollen eye because he likely has demodex mange. His immune system isn’t working well, so he is going to need rescue ASAP or he won’t make it. Please share and donate for PHIL!!

These animals are at Clayton County Animal Control at 1396 Government Circle Jonesboro, GA 30236. For help with rescue coordination, please email firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org

This is Ruthie. Ruthie was born without all the functions of her liver, and she’s having a rough time. When she was a baby, a doctor took part of her small intestine and made a little patch up for the missing parts of her liver. But this is only temporary.
Ruthie needs an organ donor, and her operation will cost around $500,000 dollars. Her family can’t pull that money, so all they’re asking for is $40,000 dollars.
With your help, Ruthie can have her surgery. Without her surgery, her body will soon outgrow the patch she has in place.
If you want to donate to Ruthie’s surgery, click here.
If you want to send a check, click here.
If you want to donate and find companies willing to match your donation, click here.
Ruthie and her family need all the help they can get, Ruthie already has hospital bills piling up, as every time she has a fever, she has to go to the hospital and get her blood checked for bacteria, then stay there for a few days.
Ruthie deserves a life outside of the hospital, and even if you can’t make a donation, it’d help so much just to signal boost this and reblog it, only the pictures of her show up on your blog.
My Venezuelan friends are reporting the following:
Students are being killed
Yes you read it right, students like yourself are being killed in Venezuela, a country in south America.
This is no fiction, it is not part of a dystopian YA novel, is real life. They are being killed by their own government, they live in a DICTATORSHIP.
You read The Hunger Games? You read novels about repressive regimes, imagine to live that for real. That is what Venezuelan students and population is living.
You felt the terror of the characters of the Harry Potter novels against the treat of the Dark Lord, That is the terror and fear that Venezuelans feels because of the repression and the armed gangs that kill people on the streets.
For a couple of days the Venezuelan students supported by the general population has being on the streets protesting against the dictatorship, the censorship of the communication media (tv, radio, news papers, even the internet), and for the lack of FOOD. Simply there is no food on the stores or in the supermarket. You can not buy (even if you have the money) you can not buy milk, oil, sugar, meat, flour, etc., because there is not any of that in the whole country.
Please take a second and within your fandom and friends raise awareness of the life and death of the Venezuelans, trapped for real in the nightmare of a dystopian reality that is trying to expand itself to another countries, even maybe yours.
