When it comes to your heart, minutes matter. That’s why CTMC has expanded its specialty cardiac services with a new Chest Pain Center.
Do you know the Heart Attack Warning Signs? Chest discomfort that feels like pressure, squeezing, fullness or pain and lasts more than a few minutes or goes away and comes back. Symptoms include pain or discomfort in one or both arms, the back, neck, jaw and stomach. Other symptoms include cold sweat, lightheadedness, weakness or shortness of breath.
Each of these is not always present. Other times, symptoms subside and then return. If symptoms last more than 10 minutes, you may be having a heart attack. Call 911 immediately or go to the nearest Emergency Department.
