• Early Heart Attack Care


  • Did you know?

    85% of heart damage occurs within the first two hours of a heart attack. Early Heart Attack Care or EHAC, is knowing the subtle danger signs of  a heart attack and acting upon them immediately BEFORE HEART DAMAGE OCCURS.

     



    Heart attacks also have beginnings.

    Early symptoms include: 

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

    Also, people may experience mild chest symptoms, such as pressure, burning, aching or tightness. These symptoms may come and go until finally becoming constant and severe. They may occur hours or weeks before the actual heart attack. 

     

    If these symptoms happen to you or anyone you know, call 9-1-1 to activate Emergency Medical Services.
