Yes, it does. The diaphragm helps to compress the heart.

Think you are having a heart attack and you are all alone

if you are alone and unable to call for help to get you to hospital you can try taking deep breaths and coughing hard with each breath as if you were trying to get sputum out of chest. do this every few seconds till help arrives, the deep breath brings in oxygen, what your brain needs to live, the cough compresses the chest which pushes the oxygen to the brain, some times it will even shock the heart into the normal beat. but get to hospital ASAP

Is it true that if you cough hard while experiencing the onset of a heart attack, you may be able to survive the heart attack while waiting for medical assistance?

No. So-called "cough CPR" is not endorsed by medical authorities, and is deemed ineffective when having a heart attack. You'd do better using the available breath asking someone to call paramedics.

If you are in a deserted area and you believe your heart has actually stopped, well, try it, nothing to lose, but that is a desperation viewpoint.

Is it possible to survive a heart attach when alone?

possible depending on the severity
first step is to lie down and reduce the pressure on the heart
keep your heart tablets in your pocket for easy/ quick access
next read up all information on heart attacks , symptoms and procedures talk with your doctor as fixya site is not a medical forum
best solution is to have a heart procedure so that you will not get a heart attack in the first place
