Heart attack care
Most of the damage sustained from a heart attack occurs within the first two hours. If recognized during this time period, the heart attack can be treated before the heart is compromised.

Many times, people may experience these early heart attack symptoms:

The most important factor in the treatment of a developing heart attack is getting emergency care quickly. If you are suffering from centralized chest discomfort or suspect you are having a heart attack, call 911 immediately.
