I have always heard to cough hard and take an aspirin if possible. The hard coughing is suppose to work. Some people have heart attacks and don't even know it. It shows up different in women than men. A lot of women do not even experience pain whereas a man may hurt in his back rather than his chest.

Its for self help when nobody is around u....Cough repeatedly and very vigorously. Take a deep breath before each cough, and the cough must be deep and prolonged. Repeat breath and a cough about every two seconds without let-up until help arrives, or until the heart is felt to be beating normally again.

Fall to the ground and grab your chest, to gain the attention of people nearby.
