#Heart Attack-How Do You Help?

So your partner/friend/relative has trouble breathing. Best to go to the doctor, ring for an ambulance or go to hospital-whichever is quickest. You pack a hospital bag. Take over all functions until your partner is in hospital.
You drive your partner and take him/her to the doctor. Listen to the prognosis.
Check visiting times.
Bring favourite fruit. Ask what to bring for the next visit(s), if allowed e.g. electronic devices, books/magazines/papers, change of pyjamas, food (healthy) etc.
Ask if your partner wants visitors.
Tell friends/relatives whom you wish to know.
Carry on as normal. Complete your necessary activities. Follow your usual routine between visits.
Care for yourself-Eat properly as you need strength and energy.
Ensure you have enough sleep for good well-being.
Feel proud that you’re coping and positive.
Feel reassured by the sympathy of others.

Fruit is always welcome

  1. Time is the most critical part of the equation….and is nothing to mess with. I experienced the widow maker and can speak first hand that had my co-workers, the ambulance squad, hospital, doctors, and everyone else reacted so quick I would not be here today.
