Emergency Action
for Fighting Heart Disease and Stroke
 
Immediately call 911 or your local emergency response number.
If you're with someone having warning signs of a heart attack or stroke, expect a denial. But insist on getting help.
 
Warning Signs
 
Heart Attack
  • Uncomfortable pressure, fullness, squeezing, or pain in the center of the chest that lasts more than a few minutes
  • Pain spreading to the shoulders, neck, or arms
  • Chest discomfort with lightheadedness, fainting, sweating, nausea, or shortness of breath

  • Sudden confusion, trouble speaking or understanding

  • Sudden trouble walking, dizziness, loss of balance or coordination

Not all of these signs occur in every attack. If some start to occur, get help fast!
