What are you to do if you have a heart attack
While you are alone.
If you’ve already received this,
It means people care about you.
The Johnson City Medical Center staff actually
Discovered this and did an in-depth study
On it in our ICU.
The two individuals that discovered this then did
An article on it, had it published and have had it incorporated into ACLS and CPR classes.
It is very true and has and does work.
It is called cough CPR.
A cardiologist says it’s the truth
If everyone who gets this sends it to 10 people,
You can bet that we’ll save at least one life.
It could save your life!
Let’s say it’s 6:15 p.m. And you’re driving home
(alone of course), after an usually 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.
What can you do?
You’ve been trained in CPR
But the guy that taught the course didn’t tell
You what to do if it happened to yourself.
Since many people are alone when they suffer a heart attack, this article seemed to be in order.
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 other people as possible about this, it could save their lives!

For the historical record…
As President George W. Bush’s top speechwriter, Marc Thiessen was provided unique access to the CIA program used in interrogating top Al Qaeda terrorists, including the mastermind of the 9/11 attack, Khalid Sheikh Mohammad (KSM).
Now, his riveting new book, “Courting Disaster“, How the CIA Kept America Safe (Regnery), has been published.
Here is an excerpt from “Courting Disaster”:
Bursting in, they find the disheveled mastermind of the 9/11 attacks, Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, in his bedroom. He is taken into custody. In the safe house, they find a treasure trove of computers, documents, cell phones and other valuable “pocket litter.”
Despite his circumstances, KSM still refuses to talk. He spews contempt at his interrogators, telling them Americans are weak, lack resilience, and are unable to do what is necessary to prevent the terrorists from succeeding in their goals. He has trained to resist interrogation. When he is asked for information about future attacks, he tells his questioners scornfully: “Soon, you will know.”
In an operation that involves unprecedented intelligence cooperation between our countries, British officials proceed to unravel the plot.

Today, if you asked an average person on the street what they know
This is only one of the many attacks stopped with the help of the CIA interrogation program established by the Bush Administration in the wake of the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks.
Former CIA Director George Tenet has declared: “I know this program has saved lives. I know we’ve disrupted plots. I know this program alone is worth more than what the FBI, the Central Intelligence Agency, and the National Security Agency put together have been able to tell us.”
Leon Panetta, Obama’s CIA Director, has said: “Important information
On Jan. 22, 2009, President Obama issued Executive Order 13491, closing the CIA program and directing that, henceforth, all interrogations by U.S personnel must follow the techniques contained in the Army Field Manual.
The morning of the announcement, Mike Hayden was still in his post as CIA Director, He called White House Counsel Greg Craig and told him bluntly: “You didn’t ask, but this is the CIA officially nonconcurring”. The president went ahead anyway, over ruling the objections of the agency. A few months later, on April 16, 2009, President Obama ordered the release of four Justice Department memos that described in detail the techniques used to interrogate KSM and other high-value terrorists. This time, not just Hayden (who was now retired) but five CIA directors -including Obama’s own director, Leon Panetta — objected. George Tenet called to urge against the memos’ release. So did Porter Goss. So did John Deutch. Hayden says: “You had CIA directors in a continuous unbroken stream to 1995 calling saying, ‘Don’t do this.'” In addition to objections from the men who led the agency for a collective 14 years, the President also heard objections from the agency’s covert field operatives. A few weeks earlier, Panetta had arranged for the eight top officials of the Clandestine Service to meet with the President. It was highly unusual for these clandestine officers to visit the Oval Office, and they used the opportunity to warn the President that releasing the memos would put agency operatives at risk. The President reportedly listened respectfully-and then ignored their advice.
With these actions, Barack Obama arguably did more damage to America’s national security in his first 100 days of office than any President in American history. (But how many people know this???)
Earl & Leroy saw an ad in the Starkville Daily News
Newspaper in Starkville, Mississippi, and bought a
mule for $100.
The farmer agreed to deliver the mule the next day..
The next morning the farmer drove up and said, “Sorry,
fellows, I have some bad news, the mule died last night.”
Earl & Leroy replied, “Well, then just give us our money back.”
The farmer said, “Can’t do that. I went and spent it already..”
They said, “OK then, just bring us the dead mule.”
The farmer asked, “What in the world ya’ll gonna do with a dead mule?”
Leroy said, “We gonna raffle him off.”
The farmer said, “You can’t raffle off a dead mule!”
Earl said, “We shor can! Heck, we don’t hafta tell
nobody he’s dead!”
A couple of weeks later, the farmer ran into Earl &
Leroy at the Piggly Wiggly grocery store and asked.
“What’d you fellers ever do with that dead mule?”
They said,”We raffled him off like we said we

Leroy said,”Shucks, we sold 500 tickets fer two
dollars apiece and made a profit of $998.”
The farmer said,”Gol dern, didn’t anyone complain?”
Earl said, “Well, the feller who won got upset.
So we gave him his two dollars back.”
Earl and Leroy now work for the gub’ment.
They’re overseeing the Stimulus Program.
