Early Heart Attack Care

did you know
Heart Attacks Have Beginnings?

Early Heart Attack Care Saves Lives!

These “beginnings” can occur hours or weeks before an attack and be treated before the heart is damaged. For 50% of the people experiencing these symptoms, the heart attack can be prevented with early treatment.

Early Heart Attack Care (EHAC) is knowing the subtle danger signs of a heart attack and acting upon them immediately—before Heart Damage occurs.


What are the “Beginnings” of a Heart Attack?
Heart attack “beginnings” are different for everyone, people may or may not experience any or all of these symptoms:

 If you or a loved one experiences any of these symptoms,
call 9-1-1 immediately.


What You Can Do to Help Save Lives

Commit to these three steps:

  1. Learn the early signs and symptoms of a heart attack
  2. Share EHAC with others
  3. Take the oath

Pledge to be part of a movement to save hearts and save lives...Because Every Heart Matters


Take the Early Heart Attack Care Oath

I understand that heart attacks have beginnings that may include chest discomfort, shortness of breath, shoulder and/or arm pain, and weakness. These may occur hours or weeks before the actual heart attack. I solemnly swear that if it happens to me or anyone I know, I will call 9-1-1 immediately.
