How to use a cardiac arrest pillow to help your loved ones sleep
Heart attack or stroke can cause sleep problems, including sleeplessness, headaches, nausea and dizziness.
But heart failure can also cause sleep disturbances.
Heart failure can cause shortness of breath, difficulty breathing, chest pain, shortness or pain in the chest, and trouble falling asleep.
And even if you’re not seriously injured, you may have heart failure that’s so bad that you’re unable to function normally.
To help you stay healthy, the American Heart Association recommends keeping a pillow nearby.
Here are five tips for making sure your loved one has a comfortable night’s sleep.
Keep your pillow away from your heart.
It’s important to keep your heart-surgery pillow away to minimize heart failure symptoms.
Make sure to place the pillow in the center of the bed, with your feet and arms close to the bed.
If your heart has trouble opening, your pillow may be too close to it.
If it’s too close, your heart may not be able to pump blood through your heart to your brain.
If you don’t want your pillow too close (such as if you sleep on the toilet), place the bed so it is directly on top of the pillow.
Make a note of which way your heart is in the pillow, and what is between your eyes and chest.
Put a pillow in a bag.
A pillow bag is a simple, lightweight, and easy-to-use bag that holds your pillow and the pillow case together.
If the pillow has a neck pillow or a side pillow, place the neck pillow in between the pillow and case.
You can also put the side pillow on top if you prefer.
Keep the pillow flat.
When you put your heart on your pillow, the pillow should be flat.
The way the pillow is placed on the bed is important to make sure your heart remains healthy.
If a pillow is too close or too far away, you can lose the heart.
If they’re too far apart, you might need to wear a mask or masking tape to cover the area.
Keep a pillow flat for up to an hour.
Make the pillow more comfortable by placing the pillow next to you or on top.
When placing the head pillow, make sure that the head is just above the pillowcase.
Make it comfortable.
If there’s any risk of heart failure, try to keep the pillow as close as possible to your heart (and not too far from it).
If it is too far or the pillow falls on your chest, make a note and bring it closer.
Keep it comfortable for up and over an hour, or as long as you need.
If no one is there to help, you should try to sleep on a flat surface.
It may help to place a pillowcase over your pillow.
If someone is sleeping in the same room, put the pillow on the opposite side of the mattress.
Keep everything in order.
To make sure you have a comfortable sleep, always make sure the pillows are clean and dry before putting them in the bag or the case.
And if you have to change the pillowcases, put a new one in the other box in the box or place a new pillowcase on top to keep it clean and dried.
Use a pillow case with a tight fitting lid.
Keep one pillowcase on your bed, and a pillow on your desk or table.
When using a pillowcases that are not tight fitting, it’s best to use pillows that have a soft foam backing, which makes them easy to lay down.
You may also use a soft pillowcase with a soft backing to lay flat on the floor or to put it under your pillow for comfort.
