Heart Attack (Myocardial Infarction)

What Should You Do If You Suspect You Are Having A Heart Attack

  • Stop whatever you're doing and sit down or lie down.

  • Take up to three nitroglycerin tablets-one at a time at five- minute intervals or as prescribed by your doctor. If the pain does not go away, call 911 or your local emergency number immediately.

  • If you do not have nitroglycerin and have had symptoms for two minutes or more, call 911 or your local emergency number immediately. Then take an aspirin unless you are allergic to aspirin.

  • If you can get to the hospital faster by car, have someone drive you. Do not drive yourself to the hospital.

  • When you get to the hospital, do not permit emergency room personnel to keep you waiting. Tell them that you may be suffering from heart attack and that you need to be seen immediately.

Do Not Minimize Your Symptoms. 

Do Not Delay.

Waiting more than fifteen minutes to see if the pain goes away can result in permanent damage to your heart. At worst, it can cost you your life.
