Although the Holidays are filled with good times and cheer with family and friends, for many it can be a very stressful season.

Make sure everyone in your household can recognize the early warning signs of a heart attack

  • Uncomfortable pressure, squeezing, fullness, or pain in the center of the chest that lasts more than a few minutes or goes away and comes back again.
  • Pain or discomfort in one or both arms, the back, neck, jaw or stomach.
  • Shortness of breath with or without chest discomfort.
  • Other signs such as breaking out in a cold sweat, nausea, or lightheadedness.

Not all of these signs occur in every heart attack. 

If you notice one or more of them do not wait, CALL 9-1-1 and get medical help right away!!.
