How to survive a heart attack alone

The 'How to survive a Heart Attack Alone' stories have once again been doing the rounds on the social media forums. This is basically an Urban Legend.

This is a subject that often raises its head and divides opinion on any course, often an easy one to deal with but I'm always left wondering how much of the discussion is remembered by the candidate. We have to quell the discussion quickly and often have to provide sufficient information to over-ride the topic to give the brain alternatives to absorb. Urban legend is often quite interesting and regularly provokes enthusiastic discussion.
