Heart attack anyone?

Postby QRM » Thu, 08 May 2008 9:42 am

Has anyone seen this email doing the round ? I attached it lower down

The best bit is, while the guy is dying you have to find a way of sterilizing the needle, like the soon to be dead guy really cares he might get an infection in his fingers.

If you have a heart attack around here 3 things can happen:

1. Someone calls an ambulance and tries to perform CPR
2. Someone comes up to you and stick satay stick in your fingers and pulls your ears
3. Someone comes up to you with note pad and pen and ask you to try and write down some random numbers.

What I find really scary is a lot of people sending this email aren’t sending it as a tongue in cheek joke.


A NEEDLE CAN SAVE THE LIFE OF A STROKE PATIENT - From A Chinese professor

This is amazing. Please keep this handy.. Excellent tips. Do take a minute to read this. You never know.....someone's life may depend on you one day!!
Keep a syringe or needle in your home to do this... It's amazing and an unconventional way of recovering from stroke, read it through.

'My father was paralyzed and later died from the result of a stroke. I wish I knew about this first aid before today. When stroke strikes, the capillaries in the brain will gradually burst.'(Irene Liu)

When witness a stroke occurring, stay calm. No matter where the victim is, do not move him/her. Because, if moved, the capillaries will burst. Gently help the victim to sit up. Prevent him from falling over again, and then the bloodletting can begin. If you have in your home an injection syringe that would be the best, otherwise, a sewing needle or a straight pin will do.

1. Place the needle/pin over fire to sterilize it, and then use it to prick the tip of all 10 fingers.

2. There are no specific acupuncture points, just prick about a mm from the fingernail.

3. Prick till blood comes out.

4. If blood does not start to drip, then squeeze with your fingers.

5. When all 10 digits is bleeding, wait a few minutes then the victim will regain consciousness.

6. If the victim's mouth is crooked, then pull on his ears until they are red.

7. Then prick each ear lobe twice until two drops of blood comes from each ear lobe. After a few minutes the victim should regain consciousness.

Wait till the victim regain his normal state without any abnormal symptoms then take him to the hospital, otherwise, if he was taken in the ambulance in a hurry to the hospital, the bumpy trip will cause all the capillaries in his brain to burst. If he could save his life, barely managing to walk, then it is by the grace of his ancestors.

' I learned about letting blood to save life from Chinese traditional doctor Ha Bu-Ting who lives in Sun-Juke. Furthermore, I had practical experience with it. Therefore I can say this method is 100% effective.In 1979, I was teaching inFung-Gaap College in Tai-Chung. One afternoon I was teaching class when another teacher came running to my class room and said in panting, 'Ms. Liu, come quick, our supervisor has had a stroke!'

I immediately went to the 3rd floor. When I saw our supervisor, Mr.Chen Fu-Tien, his color was off, his speech was slurred, his mouth was crooked-all the symptoms of a stroke. I immediately asked one of the practicum students to go to the pharmacy outside the school to buy a syringe, which I used to prick Mr. Chen's 10 fingers tips. When all 10 fingers were bleeding (each with a pea-sized drop of blood), after a few minutes, Mr. Chen's face regained its color and his eyes' spirit returned, too. But his mouth was still crooked. So I pulled on his ears to fill them with blood. When his ears became red, I pricked his right earlobe twice to let out 2 drops of blood. When both earlobes had two drops of blood each, a miracle happened. Within 3-5 minutes the shape of his mouth returned to normal and his speech became clear. We let him rest for a while and have a cup of hot tea, then we helped him go down the stairs, drove him to Wei-Wah Hospital . He rested one night and was released the next day to return to school to teach.

Everything worked normally. There were no ill after-effects. On the other hand, the usual stroke victim usually suffers irreparable bursting of the brain capillaries on the way to the hospital. As a result, these victims never recover.- ' (Irene Liu)

Therefore stroke is the second cause of death. The lucky ones will stay alive but can remain paralyzed for life. It is such a horrible thing to happen in one's life. If we can all remember this bloodletting method and start the life-saving process immediately, in a short time, the victim will be revived and regain 100% normality.

If possible, please forward this after reading. You never know as it may help save a life one day...

quite amazing where all this mumbo jumbo comes from!

In regards to ambulance in Singapore, when one was called after my daughter crashed into a metal barrier on her bicycle, I was quite disturbed at the lack of attention given to her, while i was holding her in my arms, being ex military, i am quite confident in giving first aid and although she was bleeding heavy from a gash above her eye, and the blood was pouring out, all they was interested in was my name address and ID, and never once checked my daughter for concussion or did anything, and there was 4 people in the ambulance.

I had already checked her pupils and for bleeding from the ears, but, i certainly don't have much faith in anyone here, not even the young doctor, who was sawing the wound, and shaking that much, I thought maybe this was his first patient.

All ended well in the end...

Although I also understand, that routine is required, before it becomes second nature to check patients over, one can only achieve confidence by routine training, which i have my doubts about training methods here in Singapore. Singapore maybe one of the best place for hospital treatment for specialist help, with the most nurses per patient, than many other countries, however, there is a large gap between incomes of employees.

Decided to moderate this post, because i went off topic, ranting again!

I've only got one question ksl,

How does your export license have anything to do with "A NEEDLE CAN SAVE THE LIFE OF A STROKE PATIENT". :P

That has to be the ultimate tangent I guess!

I need to get a life, in stead of all this leisure time! :lol: :oops: hey get back to work :P :wink: My instincts had already warned me, you was around! :lol: christ do we really end up, like nagging next door neighbour, is it an age thing, that we don't know when to stop, chatting! Wow over 5000 post SMS, that puts you around 5 years older than me! :P

KSL,


I have notice recently you have been reminiscing about the old days, could this be a sign of an impending mid life crises?

Here is a good self test.

1. Do you have a Harley Davidson brochure on your bedside table?
2. Are you starting to feel baboon butt red is an acceptable colour for your family car?
3. Have you acquired or in the process of acquiring a pair of tight leather trousers?
4. Are you are growing your hair in the hope the mullet will come back in style?

If you answered YES to any of the above, you are indeed heading down that slippery spiral that will end up with the acquisition of unusual items such as clothing, sports cars, jewellery, gadgets, tattoos, ,motorbike and an expensive girlfriend a third of your age :lol:

Your not wrong! I am not only reminiscing, I'm also cursing, every time i have to breathe in deep, to fasten my jeans button. The tight jeans I've had for years....around the waist that is, need plenty of ball room these days, because of the weather! :oops:
Tight leather pants not my scene, although I would think superglide is into the leather. :)

Tattoos there you go, I was just thinking of having a couple of old ones covered up, with new! Although can the skin take it at my age :roll: and the price, crikey, I would rather buy a plane ticket.

In all honesty though I have got to admit, that I've always been in the fast lane, with a very active lively life, up until I got married in 2000. That's when i started reminiscing!

But I am trying to adapt, to slowing down, quite a few people get a shock especially here, when an old grey haired ang mo, weighing 85kilos and looking like the typical bulldog, (muscles) with Richard Gere Looks, just over took, a group in there 20's :lol:


He's been reminiscing for the past 4 years! [code]
8 actually, since the day I remarried! Although that's fine, its the adjustments which are very hard, after 23 years of single life, and getting older, I was aware that the night club scene wasn't for me any more! :cry:

Although my young son from my first marriage, had to point that out to me, kind of embarrassing, him scoring my ex's, so he asked me politely to retire from the playboy scene!

Yep reminiscing over some good old times, had the panic attacks too! :lol: hormones are balanced once again, now I'm looking at grannies :wink:

Oh I forgot item No. 5. in the test

5. When you look (without the bifocals) in the mirror, do you think you look like a muscle bound version of Richard Gere? :lol:
