Health Heart Smarts Heart Attack Symptoms

It’s important to know the symptoms of a heart attack and to pay attention to the signs your body gives you. Some heart attack symptoms are similar to that of having a stroke. If you think you’re having either, call 911 immediately.

Symptoms for Heart Attack

Chest pain
Central pressure
Radiation to the arm or jaw
Any of the above lasting 5-10 minutes

Baby Aspirin Theory

“Taking an aspirin at the time of a heart attack is very important to reduce the likelihood of complications from a heart attack,” says Dr. Huffman. He adds that it’s fine for a patient to call 911 and wait for the paramedics to provide the aspirin.
Heart Attacks: Women Vs. Men

Be advised: Women tend to present signs of a heart attack 10 years after men and the symptoms tend to be more subtle. A woman`s symptoms aren`t as typical, meaning, they won`t experience the "feeling of an elephant stepping on their chest." Women need to be aware of the subtle symptoms.

It`s very important to be aware of the signs of a heart attack if you, or a family member, ever experience them. Don`t wait until it`s too late. Your heart is the strongest muscle in your body, but you have to take care of it!
