Early Heart Attack Care education asks you to learn the signs and symptoms of a heart attack so you can become an active bystander to save a life – even it if is yours. It is a national initiative, that teaches that heart attacks can have early warning signs, from the American College of Cardiology. Over 800,000 people die in the US every year from a heart attack. On average, 50% of these patients displayed, but ignored, the warning signs.
Someone may experience any or all of these symptoms. When they start, they can be mild or come and go. Women, diabetics and the elderly may not have chest pain at all.
People may experience mild chest symptoms, such as pressure, burning, aching or tightness. These symptoms may come and go until finally coming constant and severe.
