Learn what the warning signs are for a heart attack and what to do should they arise, some simple steps to keep heart healthy and what to look out for if you experience a heart event or heart surgery.
Two of the biggest and most dangerous mistakes people make about heart attacks are:
1) assuming the signs are the same for everyone
2) dismissing their symptoms and thinking they’ll just go away. This results in people not acting quickly enough.
Something we hear cardiologists say frequently is, “time is muscle”. Meaning, the longer it takes for someone to seek medical treatment for a heart attack the higher the risk of the heart muscle dying.
Taking the steps to learn what the early warning signs of a heart attack are and what to do should they arise can help you seek treatment sooner.
