prevention is better than cure

Mungkin berguna info ini, tetapi eloklah kita elakkan dari terjadi. “Prevention is better than cure”. Mungkin “expert” (doktor perubatan) boleh betulkan mana yang tidak betul pada artikel ini.

Let’s say it’s 6.15pm and you’re driving home (alone of course) after an unusually hard day on the job. You’re really tired, and frustrated…

YOU ARE REALLY STRESSED AND UPSET ….

Suddenly you start experiencing severe painsevere painin your chest that starts to radiate out into your arm and up into your jaw. You are only five miles from the hospital nearest your home. Unfortunately you don’t know if you’ll be able to make it that far.

WHAT TO DO ???

YOU HAVE BEEN TRAINED IN CPR, BUT THE GUY THAT CONDUCTED 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 CONSCIOUS WHAT TO DO ??

ANSWER:
DO NOT PANIC, BUT START COUGHING REPEATEDLY AND VERY VIGOROUSLY. A DEEP BREATH SHOULD BE TAKEN BEFORE EACH COUGH, 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 ARTICLE PUBLISHED ON NO. 240 OF JOURNAL OF GENERAL HOSPITAL ROCHESTER.

TELL AS MANY OTHER PEOPLE AS POSSIBLE ABOUT THIS. IT COULD SAVE THEIR LIVES !!! DON’T EVER THINK THAT YOU ARE NOT PRONE TO HEART ATTACK AS YOUR AGE IS LESS THAN 25 OR 30. NOWADAYS DUE TO THE CHANGE IN THE LIFE STYLE, HEARTATTACK IS FOUND AMONG PEOPLE OF ALL AGE GROUPS. BE A FRIEND AND PLEASE SEND THIS ARTICLE TO AS MANY FRIENDS AS POSSIBLE.

Andaikan pada 6:15 pm, anda memandu pulang (tentu sekali seorang diri)

Selepas kesukaran luarbiasa di tempat kerja. Anda benar2 letih dan kecewa……

Anda benar2 tertekan dan terkejut….

Tiba2 anda mengalami kesakitan teruk di dada dan mula merebak hingga lengan dan tulang rahang. Ketika itu anda berada hanya 5 km saja dari hospital terdekat, malangnya anda tak pasti samada sempat sampai di sana atau tidak.

Apa perlu anda lakukan ???

Anda telah dilatih melakukan CPR, tetapi tidak diajar bagaimana hendak melakukannya pada diri sendiri.

BAGAIMANA NAK SELAMATKAN DIRI DARI SERANGAN JANTUNG KETIKA KESEORANGAN?
Kebanyakan orang sedang bersendirian ketika serangan jantung. Tanpa bantuan, seseorang yang degupan jantungnya tidak stabil akan mula pitam, hanya 10 saat sahaja sebelum tidak sedarkan diri.

APA NAK BUAT?

JAWAPAN:
Jangan panik, sebaliknya batuk lah berulangkali dengan kuat dan bersungguh2. Tarik nafas dalam2 sebelum batuk, dan batuk sedalam2 dan sepanjang2nya seperti hendak mengeluarkan kahak dari jauh dalam dada. Tarikan nafas dan batuk perlu di ulang tiap 2 saat tanpa henti hinggalah bantuan tiba, atau sehingga degupan jantung kembali normal.

Tarikan nafas yang dalam memberikan oksigen kepada paru2 manakala pergerakan dari batuk akan menekan jantung seterusnya mengekalkan peredaran darah. Himpitan dan tekanan pada jantung juga membantu mengembalikan degupan yang normal. Dengan cara ini mangsa serangan jantung sempat ke hospital.

Beritahu seberapa ramai orang yang boleh. Ia mungkin membantu menyelamatkan nyawa mereka. Jangan sangka anda bebas dari serangan jantung hanya kerana umur anda kurang dari 25 atau 30 tahun. Hari ini, disebabkan perubahan gaya hidup, serangan jantung tidak mengira umur.

p/s: selamat berhujung minggu
