Most people panic and don’t know what to do when they suspect myocardial infarction. This causes them to fall into unconsciousness in a matter of seconds. But, even though you simply have a couple of seconds to react there’s something you are able to do, which could be probably life-saving.
You need to keep in mind that first you must call an ambulance, that’s crucial. After you’ve called professional help you have to begin coughing forcefully!
Start coughing deep and strong; don’t stop, in a period of two seconds, extending the exhale. This could save your life or the life of somebody you care about.
