In brief: No self CPR!!

Take Aspirin if available and do not hesitate to seek help from any one around.
Availability of defibrillator and getting to a hospital pronto is key. If you are in a deserted island with no one around lie down, meditate or pray and hope for the best. No you cannot do your own CPR because, if you could you don't need one.

In brief: No cure but...

There is no cure that you can self provide.
.. But call 911 and chew 325mg of aspirin. There is some anecdotal evidence for continuous low intensity coughing as well.

If you do not get the occluded coronary open within minutes of its occlusion you will have permanent heart muscle damage or death. Therefore, the onset of symptom + emergency room door to open coronary time determines chance of survival and morbidity.
