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
- 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.
