Default Stroke vs Heart Attack

Stroke vs Heart Attack
Is It A Stroke?

.This might be a lifesaver if we can remember the three questions!

Sometimes symptoms of a stroke are difficult to identify.

Unfortunately, the lack of awareness spells disaster

for the stroke victim.


A stroke victim may suffer brain damage when people
nearby fail to recognize the symptoms of a stroke.

Now doctors say any bystander can recognize a stroke

by asking three simple questions:


1. Ask the individual to smile.
2. Ask him or her to raise both arms.
3. Ask the person to speak a simple sentence.


If he or she has trouble with any of these tasks,


call 911 immediately and describe the symptoms to the dispatcher.

After discovering that a group of non-medical volunteers

could identify facial weakness, arm weakness and speech problems,

researchers urged the general public to learn the three questions.

They presented their conclusions at the

American Stroke Association's annual meeting last February.

Widespread use of this test could result in prompt diagnosis

and treatment of the stroke and prevent brain damage.
Is It A Heart Attack?



A cardiologist says if everyone who gets this e-mail sends it to 10 people,
you can bet that at least one life will be saved.
Read this . . It could save your life!!

Let's say it's 6:15 PM. and you're driving 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 radiate 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.


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 get to a hospital.

Tell as many people as possible about this.

It could save their lives!!

I reopened it.It might be too large,but the information contained is very good.Especially the part about a heart attack when you are alone.I am trained to give CPR info over the phone and such,but never heard about the coughing and deep breaths.A lifesaver if I ever saw one! Thanks Neverrude!

I tried to post this before, but things changed here, and guess I'm just retarded? I'll try again? Last Nov my husband was hiding behind my truck at IBSP on all 4's. Good blitz. Not his first heart attack, and good thing I had caught him and had nitro. I got the "leave me alone, got to catch my breath stuff"? Spent Christmas & New Years in the hospital. 5 way bypass. He wanted to just keep fishing. He knew the symptoms. I worry when I see you guys come out alone. Geezz.

Goofinoff,
Dont know what your problem is with Gottog,but I think he was refering to trying to make the post smaller,not anything between you. The reasons you mentioned was why I reopend this.Many of us "guys" do fish alone on the beach,and like you said,we always think that its just heartburn or something.The chest thumping"I am man! Nothing can kill me!" kills more people than you can imagine.I am glad your husband is doing well,maybe your story can save someone else.

I'm very sorry. I assumed the worst from the mud hole and don't belong here and won't come back. It just really hurts watching this happen. I only saved my husband cause I'm a bit*ch and he was piss*d I called it that day. Just flung it all in the back. I really should have left it. Sorry Gottog. We didnt hit it off before, but thought you were just getting on me? We're going fishing this weekend. I'm trying to at least take them off the hook myself, but not going good so far.

Goofinoff,
That happens here on the Internet I dont really care for the Mudhole either,but it's somtimes entertaining Though it sometimes get my blood pressure up just before bed,which I am getting ready to do now.Dont limit your participation on any of the boards on the site.Even though many times people dont agree with each other,unless things get a bit out of hand,their posts remain,to get commented on,ripped apart etc,by others.
Dont mind Gottog too much.The poor guy has to get some sand under his feet,see the sunrise from the beach,and get away from those hand rails!
Gottog,
The sand is calling! Get away from those damn boats,and do some real fishing!!!

Sand, smand. I see better sunrises/sets from on the water, closer to the horizon axis


Goof, you might be taking things too serious. Sarcasm, etc doesn't translate well over the internet/message boards. Hope your husband is doing better and he's lucky you were there.

Rags is just insane, sits on his brains too much.

Sometimes a person doesn't know they had a stroke. If their speech is slurred where it was otherwise clear, that may be a cause for concern.

I heard the Heart Attack one before, but not the stoke questions.

I have also heard that an asprin at the onset of a heart attack has some pretty dramatic positive effects.

Thank's NeverRude!

Asprin is a blood thinner.
This "cough thing" has been around the net before and was provin to be false.
