Know the Heart Attack Warning Signs

Not all heart attacks are the same. Some are sudden, dramatic, and leave no doubt that you are in trouble. Others are subtle, quiet, and with little or no pain. Both can cause a lot of damage and even death. Knowing the signs of a heart attack and getting help quickly can save your life … or someone else's. Learn more.

Many people who have a heart attack at home, work, or in a public location die because they don’t receive immediate CPR from someone on the scene. If you were a bystander, would you be prepared to take action?
