Know the Warning Signs of a Heart Attack and Stroke and 2 steps to Save a LIFE.
Heart attack and stroke are life-and-death emergencies — every second counts. If you see or have any of the listed symptoms, immediately call 9-1-1 or your emergency response number. Not all these signs occur in every heart attack or stroke. Sometimes they go away and return. If some occur, get help fast! Today heart attack and stroke victims can benefit from new medications and treatments unavailable to patients in years past.
Heart Attack - Some heart attacks are sudden and intense but most heart attacks start slowly with mild chest pain or discomfort. For women, heart attack symptoms may include shortness of breath, nausea/vomiting and back or jaw pain. Immediately call 9-1-1 if someone is having these symptoms.
Stroke - For strokes, call 9-1-1 immediately for sudden numbness or weakness of the leg, sudden confusion or trouble understanding, sudden trouble seeing in one or both eyes, sudden trouble walking, dizziness, loss of balance, and sudden headache with no known cause.
Carbon monoxide detectors save lives, but less than one-third of American homes have one installed. With December and January at the peak of CO poisonings, be sure to follow tips like these:
• Replace the battery for your home’s CO detector each spring and fall
• Do not heat your home with a gas range or oven
• Never run a car or truck inside an attached garage
