Early Heart Attack Care (EHAC)

Heart attacks have beginnings! EHAC encourages early recognition when heart attack symptoms are mild. For the 50% of people experiencing these symptoms, the heart attack can be prevented with early treatment, before damage to the heart can occur. Symptoms can begin two weeks before a major event. 85% of heart damage occurs within the first two hours of blockage. Heart attack deaths kill 800,000 people annually in the US. Knowing the signs and symptoms can help cut that number in half. Call 9-1-1 if you are experiencing any signs or symptoms.
