Our Lady of the Resurrection Medical Center is an Accredited Chest Pain Center and a Certified Primary Stroke Center. Why is this important? For heart attack and stroke victims, it can mean the difference between life and death.
Is it a heart attack? Know the warning signs:
- Pain or discomfort in the center of the chest
- Discomfort in the arms, back, neck, jaw or stomach
- Shortness of breath
- Cold sweat
- Nausea or lightheadedness
Call 911 if you or someone with you has any of these symptoms.
Is it a stroke? Act F.A.S.T.
Ask the person to smile. Does one side of the face droop?
Ask the person to raise both arms. Does one arm drift downward?
Ask the person to repeat a simple sentence. Are the words slurred? Can he/she repeat the sentence correctly?
If the person shows any of these symptoms, call 911 or get to the hospital fast. Every second counts because brain cells could be dying.
