Getting Heart Attack Treatments Fast Enough

separator Death from heart attacks can often be prevented if patients simply get to a hospital fast enough. The problem is that people don't always realize they're having a heart attack. The National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute is hoping to increase awareness of the symptoms of a heart attack and the importance of calling 9-1-1 immediately. It's created an "Act in Time" campaign that has information about the warning signs of a heart attack, how to respond and a heart attack survival plan you can print out, personalize and keep handy in case of emergency.

The symptoms of a heart attack are often milder or different than people expect. Symptoms can include:
  • Chest discomfort (can feel like pressure, pain, squeezing or fullness)
  • Discomfort or pain in the jaw, one or both arms, the back, neck, jaw or stomach
  • Shortness of breath
  • Breaking into a cold sweat
  • Nausea
  • Lightheadedness
