How many people do you know who have had a heart attack or stroke?  Would you know what to do if someone had symptoms of either stroke or heart attack?
  1. Common heart attack signs and symptoms include:
    • Pressure, tightness, pain, or a squeezing or aching sensation in your chest or arms that may spread to your neck, jaw or back.
    • Nausea, indigestion, heartburn or abdominal pain.
    • Shortness of breath.
    • Cold sweat.
    • Fatigue.
    • Lightheadedness or sudden dizziness.
What To Do When Heart Attack Symptoms Occur
If you or someone you are with experiences chest discomfort or other heart attack symptoms, call 911 right away. Do not wait more than 5 minutes to make the call. While your first impulse may be to drive yourself or the heart attack victim to the hospital, it is better to call 911. Emergency medical services (EMS) personnel can begin treatment on the way to the hospital and are trained to revive a person if his heart stops.
What To Do Before Paramedics Arrive
If you see someone who appears to be having a heart attack, call 911 right away. Then, follow these steps:
  • Try to keep the person calm, and have them sit or lie down.
  • If the person is not allergic to aspirin, have them chew and swallow a baby aspirin (It works faster when chewed and not swallowed whole).
  • If the person stops breathing, you or someone else who is qualified should perform CPR immediately. If you don't know CPR, the 911 operator can assist you until the EMS personnel arrive.
2.  Signs that you may be having a stroke:
  •           Sudden numbness or weakness of the face, arm or leg, 
  •           especially on one side of the body.
  •           Sudden confusion, trouble speaking or understanding.
  •           Sudden trouble seeing or blurred vision in one or both eyes.
  •           Sudden trouble walking, dizziness, loss of balance or coordination.
  • F.  Face Drooping
  • A.  Arm Weakness
  • S.  Speech Difficulty
  • T.  Time to call 911!
