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.

I just finished watching Evangelion and I have to say I am thoroughly disappointed by the entire experience
Thanks, Eva fandom, for completely misrepresenting the experience of a thoroughly mediocre and only mildly edgy…
You should watch Hokuto no Ken next. :P
Angelina Jolie had a double mastectomy, in case you hadn’t heard. How dare she remove those ticking time bombs from her chest, amiright? Like, hasn’t she learned by now that her body is public domain and we all get to vote on what she does with it? Sheesh, how selfish can ya get.
This is a perfect analogy.
In a piece for the New York Times, Angelina Jolie revealed she underwent a preventative double mastectomy. I’m not going to summarize it here because you should hear it coming from her. If you haven’t yet read it, you really should read it right now
Give me their addresses, because I would love to give each and every one of them a taste of my fist.
Susan Stryker and others discussing the Transgender Studies Quarterly. This would be a huge step for the trans* community in terms of academia and the vast groups of people that could be reached through its publication.
Ok so I’m almost on tears at this. As someone who is currently perusing an academic career while doing research and hoping to be published one day I cannot tell you how important this is. Honestly if I had $20,000 right now I would fund this entire thing. This is going to be HUGE for trans people everywhere and open up so many doors for research. Ugh please make this happen.
