Signs & Symptoms of a Heart Attack
Approximately 600,000 die annually in the United States from heart disease. One out of every four deaths is related to heart disease. Heart disease doesn’t discriminate; it is the leading cause of death for men and women. In fact, more than half of the deaths due to heart disease in 2009 were in men.
Coronary heart disease (CHD) is the most common type of heart disease, killing more than 350,000 people annually. Every year about 735,000 people living in the United States have a heart attack.
If you experience heart attack warning signs, get help immediately. Heart attacks are not always sudden and intense. Some may start of slow and exhibit only mild pain or discomfort. Know your body and call 911 if you have any of these signs or symptoms.
