Early Heart Attack Care (EHAC)

Recognizing early symptoms can help prevent a heart attack. Heart attack symptoms may occur hours or even weeks before the actual heart attack.

Early Symptoms of a heart attack include:

• Chest pain, pressure, squeezing or discomfort
• Anxiety
• Fatigue
• Jaw pain
• Pain that travels down one or both arms
• Nausea
• Feeling of fullness
• Shortness of breath
• Back pain
• Feeling of impending doom
• Dizziness
• Upper abdominal pressure or discomfort
• Light headaches, fainting, sweating, nausea or shortness of breath without chest discomfort

Early heart attack care (EHAC) is a campaign intended to educate everyone about the early symptoms of a heart attack in order to prevent the heart attack from ever occurring. Preventing the heart attack prevents heart damage. EHAC is also a plea to the public to be responsible, not only for themselves, but for those around who may be experiencing early heart attack symptoms and to help them obtain immediate treatment. This is a public education program that concentrates on the benefits of receiving early treatment and activating emergency medical services.

EHAC is important in saving your heart. If you or someone you know is experiencing these symptoms, take an aspirin and call 911.
