Heart Attack Warnings

Tuesday, 31 May 2011 04:37 PM

A heart attack is a serious medical emergency. It is important to know the symptoms of a heart attack so that one can deal with it. Timely medical care is paramount during such an episode.

Heart attack warning usually comes in the form of radiating pain that spreads across the left breast bone. Most people experience this warning sign of a heart attack. Those who suffer from cardiac problems and have recently had surgery such as a cardiac bypass surgery must be prepared in all circumstances to deal with such emergencies.

Usually, a heart attack comes after several weeks of angina or chest pain. If you have been suffering from frequent chest pains and sudden squeezing sensations, it is important to brace yourself against heart attack and prepare yourself. The pain during a heart attack may usually last for as long as 15 minutes and spread across the neck, jaw, shoulders, and arms. Dizziness and shortness of breath are also heart attack warnings. Signs of heart attack must not be ignored, and calling 9-1-1 immediately is recommended for heart attack help.
