Heart Attack Awareness for American Heart Month
February is American Heart Month and we’re helping to raise awareness about cardiac arrest. Did you know that 70% of heart attacks occur outside of a hospital? That’s nearly 350,000 heart attacks every year!
It’s important to understand the warning signs of a heart attack, as it will allow you to be able to get help or help someone suffering from a heart attack. Here are common heart attack symptoms:
- Chest pain or discomfort
- Feeling weak, light-headed, or faint
- Pain or discomfort in the jaw, neck, or back
- Pain or discomfort in one or both arms or shoulders
- Shortness of breath
If you notice symptoms of a heart attack or if someone suspects they’re experiencing a heart attack, call 9-1-1 immediately.
