Having Heart Attack Symptoms?
If you experience some of the telltale signs of a heart attack—pressure
or burning in your chest combined with a rapid heartbeat, nausea, arm
or jaw pain— don’t ignore them. If symptoms last for more
than 10 minutes and you’re also sweaty, dizzy or short of breath,
call 911 right away.
Are You Prepared To Help Someone In Cardiac Arrest?
Saving a life starts with immediate response. If you see someone collapse
suddenly, check if the victim is responsive.
- Call 911.
- Start hands-only CPR and continue until help arrives.
- If an automated external defibrillator (AED) is available, don’t
be afraid to use it. The device has voice instructions to lead you step by step.
