How to revive someone from a heart attack?
Answers
Someone who has had or is having a heart attack may not be unconcious; but if they are, they can be revived with medication, or with any luck, time. Someone who is in cardiac arrest on the other hand, needs CPR and heavy rounds of cardiac medications.
Well, a defibrillator will work, but the last thing you want to do to someone who just had a heart attack is use a defib on them.
