Does cough CPR work?
If you think you are having a heart attack should you try to stabilize your heartbeat by coughing every 20-30 seconds as you drive yourself to the hospital? If you are alone, the best thing you can do is to pull over and call 911. At least if you lose consciousness your signal is going to go through. There is no scientific evidence showing that coughing can be used as self-help CPR during a heart attack. Actually you are wasting precious time that can be used in calling for help.
