Your body may warn you of a heart attack — days, weeks, even as much as a month before an attack strikes.
Recent research from Duke University Medical School indicates that up to 60% of people fail to recognize they are having a heart attack. And these so-called “silent” heart attacks are associated with a shockingly high risk of death.
According to the government’s Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, many Americans fail to act on heart attack warning signs. Sadly, too many victims die because they do not know the most dangerous warning signs that a heart attack is near.
And because statistics show a clear link between a delay in heart attack treatment and death or disabling heart damage, it’s essential to know exactly what your heart is trying to tell you.
Fortunately, renowned cardiovascular expert Chauncey Crandall, M.D. has prepared a free video presentation: These 4 Things Happen Right Before a Heart Attack. This powerful video reveals some of the most ominous warnings of unrecognized heart attacks.
Although originally developed as an educational tool, this video quickly went viral, surpassing 5 million viewers in just a few months.
Newsmax Health Publisher Travis Davis attributes the viral sensation to the fact that the content hits close to home for many Americans. Heart disease is the #1 killer in the U.S. — and the leading cause of death for both men and women.
Each year, about, about 785,000 Americans suffer their first heart attack. And nearly half a million more suffer a repeat attack.
Dr. Crandall, chief of the cardiac transplant program at the renowned Palm Beach Cardiovascular Clinic in Palm Beach, Florida, practices on the front lines of interventional, vascular, and transplant cardiology.
Decades of clinical experience have afforded him the chance to detect little-known bodily warning signs and symptoms like the four he addresses in the complimentary video.
Plus, in the video Dr. Crandall also tells the real-life story of one man who suffered a “widow-maker” heart attack after ignoring the warning signs — and almost paid the ultimate price.

The story is scary but eye-opening, because Dr. Crandall outlines what could have been done to actually prevent this from progressing to the life-threatening stage.
Fortunately, Dr. Crandall, medical editor of the Newsmax publication the Heart Health Report, has a positive message for Americans: Heart disease can be prevented — and even reversed — with the right information and simple lifestyle adjustments. He shares helpful strategies in the video.
