Do You Know The Symptoms Of A Heart Attack?

Friday, September 04, 2009

I just finished reading an article titled "How to Tell if Someone Is Having a Heart Attack
- Five heart attack symptoms to watch for and how to respond" that told me the symptoms of a heart attack.

Please read it and tell me what you think.


The article went over the fact that people don't usually have the same symtoms that the actors have in the tv shows and movies. Therefore, you should read this article if you don't know the actually symptoms of a heart attack. In the article I also learned that if you witness someone have a heart attack the symptoms could be totally different the if you were to witness another person have symptoms of a heart attack. Therefore, you should definitely read the article writen by "Stephanie Trelogan" to see what the symptoms are. Stephanie Trelogan says to never wait 1 to 2 hours before calling 911 when you see these symptoms and if you hear the person keep saying they are fine when they are having problems breathing normally then call 911. The reason is the minutes before the "heart attack" accures are very important to the person who is having the heart attack symptoms, because as we all know some people don't survive. You can also damage the "heart" permanently if you wait yo long and that will lead to life long "heart problems".

To get to the point you need to read this article by "Stephanie Trelogan". Once you have done that you will know what to do when you see these symptoms, which in most cases are totally different then those symptoms that you have seen on tv or in the movies. What I am saying is that most people (like me) don't know the symptoms of a heart attack and need to read this article so that they can save someone's life that they care about.

Thanks for reading this blog. Please write me a comment and tell me what you think about "Stephanie Trelogan's" article "How to Tell if Someone Is Having a Heart Attack
- Five heart attack symptoms to watch for and how to respond".

I wish you the best of luck with losing the weight that you want to lose safely.

Have a good day.

God Bless you, your family and friends'.

    My hubby had one in 2002 and had to be rushed in to have a triple by-pass he actually died on the table and they brought
    him back to me thank-you God for letting my hubby live he got
    a 2nd chance @ life "GOD" new that I needed my hubby for my healthy reasons so be on the look out for symptons please.

    This is what my hubby went though...It can be different on each and everyone of us...They are not the same on each person?

    Sometimes it can be and sometimes not...I guess I was a very lucky wife to have got hubby back...So be on the look out please...Watch for signs...And dont wait to call 9-11 please.

    Thanks for bringing this to other's attention. I am a medic & first aid instructor. You are very right to say that most patients don't have a "hollywood heart attack" and waiting hours to call 911 is very dangerous.
