In a Heart Attack, Minutes Matter

Heart Attack Signs and Symptoms

During a heart attack, blocked blood vessels prevent oxygen from getting to the heart. Tissue is lost, and the heart muscle is dying. Minutes matter.

Recognizing the symptoms of a heart attack and reacting quickly are crucial to saving lives. CALL 911 or get to the Chest Pain Center if you feel:

Typical signs and symptoms

  • Crushing pain, discomfort, pressure or feeling of fullness or squeezing in the chest
  • Discomfort in one or both arms, back, neck or jaw
  • Shortness of breath, sudden abnormal sweating or dizziness

Atypical signs and symptoms

  • Fatigue or sudden weakness (especially for female or diabetic patients)
  • Nausea, lightheadedness
  • Upper abdominal pain
Did You Know? Recognizing and treating a heart attack right away improves your chance for survival. The typical American - male or female - waits two hours before calling for help.

Early Heart Attack Care

Download the Early Heart Attack Care (EHAC) fact sheet from ACC Accreditation Services. 

Unlike most programs that promote recognition of signs and symptoms of an impending heart attack, Franciscan Health's Early Heart Attack Care initiative encourages early recognition when symptoms may be mild. For the 50% of people experiencing these symptoms, the heart attack can be prevented with early treatment - BEFORE ANY DAMAGE TO THE HEART CAN OCCUR.
