“Heart disease remains the leading cause of death in the United States. Your prompt actions can mean the difference between life and death during a heart attack when blocked blood flow to the heart tissue results in muscle death.
Chest discomfort can be described as ache, pressure, squeezing, or crushing. Women and diabetics are less likely to have classic signs of a heart attack; they may simply experience nausea or unexplained fatigue. Shortness of breath could be the only sign of an impending heart attack for some individuals.
Aspirin is the most important medication for an individual having a heart attack. In addition, when caring for someone who may be having a heart attack, follow these steps:
Keep the individual and yourself calm.
Have them sit or lie down.
Activate the EMS by calling 911.
Give 2 to 4 baby aspirins or half to a full adult aspirin tablet. Make sure the aspirin in not enteric-coated.
Be prepared to administer CPR. Heart attacks can become fatal quickly.
Individuals with symptoms of a heart attack should be transported to the hospital via EMS. Do not let someone suspected of having a heart attack drive themselves to the hospital. Encourage them to wait until EMS arrives. If they refuse, then have someone else go with them to the hospital.”
