If blood flow that is obstructed isn’t restored or fixed immediately, the section of heart muscle begins to die.
The technique to render a rescuing method for the survival of the people who are having a heart attack is called “Cough-CPR.”
This technique is being used in situations that require resuscitation for people who are having a difficulty in breathing which could lead to severe complication such a heart failure or seizures.
