What to do if you feel like you are having a heart attack and are alone?

October 1, 2022 - Parul Saini, Webmedy Team


If you are alone and experience symptoms of a heart attack, call an ambulance immediately. If you have aspirin, take it. If you are alone in a car, unlock your front door and lie down next to it so that medical personnel can find you easily.

Is there an easy way to prevent a heart attack?

No, there is no easy way to prevent a heart attack without getting emergency medical treatment in a hospital. Online you will find many easy heart attack remedies. However, these simple treatments are not effective and by delaying emergency medical treatment, these treatments can be dangerous.

Is Cough CPR for heart attack effective?

The cough CPR is a myth that has been circulating the internet.

A heart attack occurs when the blood supply to your heart muscle is cut off, usually due to a blood clot. A heart attack can lead to a cardiac arrest, when your heart stops pumping blood around your body. You would become unconscious, and without immediate CPR (chest compressions and rescue breaths), you would die.

If you are still conscious and in a position to perform cough CPR, you are not in cardiac arrest and therefore CPR is not needed, but immediate medical attention is important.

In case of heart attack, is there any benefit of taking cayenne pepper with water?

Another online remedy that is not effective is drinking a glass of water with a teaspoon of cayenne pepper.

Yes, it is true that consumption of cayenne pepper increases blood circulation, improves the strength of blood vessels and reduces plaque buildup in your arteries. One of the main reasons for this is capsaicin, an active compound in cayenne pepper. But it is of no use in case of heart attack. Immediate medical help is important.

Aspirin is helpful.

What are the signs of a heart attack?

  • Discomfort in the chest, especially in the center, that lasts or comes on for more than a few minutes. You may feel a squeezing pain in this discomfort.
  • Discomfort in upper body parts such as the arms, back, neck, jaw, or stomach. It may feel like pain or a general discomfort.
  • Difficulty breathing, which may come with, or without chest discomfort.
  • Unusual sensations such as cold sweats, nausea, vomiting, or dizziness. Women are more likely to experience these types of symptoms than men.

How to reduce the factors of heart attack?

While you can't control all of your heart attack factors, such as aging, gender (men are at higher risk), and heredity, there are some you can control. They are:

  • Stop smoking and minimize your exposure to secondhand smoke.
  • Keep your high blood cholesterol and high blood pressure under control. For this, change your diet, lose weight, or take medicines.
  • Stay physically active daily.
  • Control your weight if you're overweight or obese.
  • If you have diabetes, follow your treatment plan to control your blood sugar.
  • Get control of the stress in your life. For this, practice relaxation techniques like deep breathing or yoga.
  • Limit your alcohol consumption.
  • Eat a healthy and balanced diet rich in a variety of vitamins and minerals.
  • Get enough sleep.

Summary

A block in the coronary artery causes a heart attack. This prevents blood from getting to the heart and can be very dangerous. The sooner doctors are able to restore blood supply to the heart, the better the person's chances of survival. So it is important to get medical help by calling as soon as possible.
