HEALTH: Our Heart Controls The Rhythm And Speed Off Our Heart Rate. Learn.

Every organ in our body parts is as important as it keeps us alive. It is our responsibility to keep them safe and healthy. This article is about our hearts and how to revive a person who undergoes a heart attack.

The heart is made up of four chambers: two upper chambers are known as the left atrium and right and two lower chambers called the left and right ventricles.

Our heart is a bit like a house. It has walls, rooms, doors, plumbing and an electrical system. All the parts of our hearts work together to keep blood flowing and send nutrients to our other organs. Our heart's main function is to move blood throughout our body. It also controls the rhythm and speed of our heart rate. Maintains the blood pressure.

When the heart stops, the lack of oxygen-rich blood can cause death or permanent brain damage within minutes. Time is critical when you're helping an unconscious person who isn't breathing. If you see someone who's unconscious and not breathing normally. Perform Cardiopulmonary resuscitation or CPR, while paramedics are on their way at the rate of 100 to 120 compressions a minute. If you've been trained in CPR, check the person's airway and deliver rescue breaths after every 30 compressions.

CPR, especially if conducted immediately after cardiac arrest, can double or triple a person's chance of survival. About 90 per cent of people who experience an out-of-hospital cardiac arrest die.

However, if the CPR did incorrectly, complications of bystander CPR include rib fracture, lung injuries such as pneumothorax and lung contusion, abdominal organ injuries such as hepatic, splenic and gastric injuries, and chest and/or abdominal pain requiring analgesics.

Demonstration Of CPR

In order to keep our hearts happy and healthy, one should eat a healthy diet, exercise, keeping a healthy weight. Quit smoking and stay away from secondhand smoke. Control your cholesterol and blood pressure. Drink alcohol only in moderation and manage stress.
