Early Heart Attack Care (EHAC)

   

Did you know heart attacks have beginnings?

THESE “BEGINNINGS” OCCUR IN MORE THAN 50% OF PATIENTS. Most importantly, if recognized in time, these “beginnings” can be treated before the heart is damaged!


What are the early signs and symptoms?

Early Heart Attack Warning Signs

  • Indigestion or nausea
  • Pain that travels down one or both arms
  • Jaw pain
  • Fatigue
  • Anxiety
  • Chest pressure, squeezing or discomfort
  • Back pain
  • Shortness of breath
  • Feeling of fullness
 

Not everyone will experience all or any of these symptoms.


What should you do?

I understand that heart attacks have beginnings and, on occasion, signs of an impending heart attack may include chest discomfort, shortness of breath, shoulder and/or arm pain, and weakness. These may occur hours, or even weeks, before the actual heart attack. I solemnly swear that if it happens to me or anyone I know, I will call 9-1-1 or activate our Emergency Medical Services.
