Heart attacks have beginnings. These beginnings occur in more than 50% of patients. Most importantly, if recognized in time, these “beginnings” can be treated before the heart is damaged!
By sharing Early Heart Attack Education (EHAC), we can change these sobering statistics!
Early signs and symptoms that can begin hours or days before a heart attack. You may or may not experience any or all of these symptoms. You may experience mild chest symptoms, such as pressure, burning, aching or tightness. These symptoms may come and go until finally becoming constant and severe.
If you have one or more of these symptoms, you owe it to yourself to get these symptoms checked out immediately at Livingston Regional Hospital's Emergency Department.
