ABOUT HEART ATTACKS There are other symptoms of an heart attack besides the pain on the left arm. One must also be aware of an intense pain on the chin, as well as nausea and lots of sweating, however these symptoms may also occur less frequently.
IF YOU DO DEVELOP THESE SYMPTOMS ACT FAST - PHONE FOR AN AMBULANCE OR PARAMEDIC - DO NOT WORRY THAT YOU COULD BE EMBARRASED BY A BOUT OF INDEGESTION OR JOINT PAIN. The medical services will not be mad at you for calling them out.
NOTE: There may be no pain in the chest during a heart attack.
The majority of people (about 60%) who had an heart attack during their sleep, did not wake up.. However, if it occurs, the chest pain may wake you up from your deep sleep. If that happens,
1. TELEPHONE THE EMERGENCY NUMBER FOR THE COUNTRY YOU ARE IN - THIS IS 911 FOR THE USA AND CANADA. IT IS 999 IN THE UK.
2. IMMEDIATELY CHEW AN ASPIRIN TABLET IN YOUR MOUTH and swallow it with a glass of water
Do not delay phoning for help until after you have taken the pill, do it first, then CHEW the aspirin and wash it down with water.
If you live alone, and if you are still capable then you could take your door off the latch so your neigbour or the paramedics can enter speedily and without breaking down the door should you be incapable of answering.
Afterwards, phone a neighbor or a family member who lives close by and state "HEART ATTACK!!!" and that you have taken an ASPIRIN Take a seat on a chair or sofa wait to for the emergency services arrival.....DO NOT LIE DOWN !!!
If you live alone then if you are capable then take your door off the latch so your neigbour or the paramedics can enter speedily and without breaking it down.
