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!
Livingston Regional Hospital received Chest Pain Center accreditation from the American College of Cardiology. We are dedicated to providing our patients with the best heart care treatment available. As an accredited facility, we use the newest methods and best practices in heart care to ensure that our patients receive:
Early signs and symptoms that can begin hours or days before a heart attack. It's possible to only experience a few of these symptoms that may come and go before becoming severe.
If you one or more of these symptoms, you owe it to yourself to get these symptoms checked out immediately at Livingston Regional Hospital
Calling 9-1-1 is almost always the fastest way to get lifesaving treatment. EMS staff are trained to revive someone whose heart has stopped. It is best to call EMS for rapid transport to the emergency room.
