Remember the Three A's in Heart Attack

Ambulance, Aspirin, Allen

Heart attacks have "beginnings" that occur in over 50 percent of patients. Most importantly, if recognized in time, these beginnings can be treated before the heart is damaged.

Early heart attack symptoms include:

  • Pain that travels down one or both arms
  • Jaw pain
  • Anxiety
  • Feeling of fullness
  • Chest pressure, squeezing, burning, aching, tightness or discomfort
  • Shortness of breath

If you or someone you know has any of these symptoms, call 911 and remember: Ambulance, Aspirin, Allen.

Did you have a heart attack? Did a loved one tell the 911 operator about the Three A's? Or perhaps told first responders to go to Allen Hospital? If so, we'd love to hear about it. Please fill out the form below and we will be happy to speak with you and share your story.
