HOW DO I KNOW IF I AM SUFFERING A HEART ATTACK?
The Heart Foundation of Australia recommends that if you experience the warning signs such pain, pressure, heaviness or tightness in the chest, neck, jaw, arms, shoulders, abdomen, or back as chest pains of a heart attack for 10 minutes and, if the symptoms are severe or get worse, you must call 0-0-0 immediately for an ambulance. If you experience these signs, you should:
STOP AND REST
Tell someone about our symptoms and, if you take angina medicine, you should take a dose
If your symptoms are severe, getting worse or have lasted more than 10 minutes you should call 0-0-0.
