Heart Attack


The classic symptoms are:

  • Chest pain
  • Pressure, heaviness or tightness in the chest
  • Pain or pressure in the neck or jaw
  • Pain or pressure in one or both arms (especially the left)
  • Shortness of breath
  • Sweating
  • Nausea
  • Pain or throbbing between the shoulder blades

If You Suspect You're Having a Heart Attack

If you suspect a heart attack, do not make an appointment to see the doctor.  A private physician will probably not have the tools necessary to treat a heart attack.  Instead, call an ambulance immediately!

If you have chest pain, always go to the ER.

While waiting for the ambulance:

  • Sit down and rest.  The more exercise or stress you put on the heart, the more damage the heart attack will do.  Sit and rest until the ambulance arrives.
  • Have someone gather your medications.  If there is someone with you, have them gather your medications or an updated list.  It's a good idea to have personal medical information available at all times for the ambulance crew.
