Heart trouble? Here’s what to do.
Heart attacks are the leading cause of death in the United States, with more than 600,000 deaths annually from heart disease and more than 5 million visits to hospital emergency rooms due to chest pain.

If you think you’re having a heart attack, don’t wait. Know the signs and symptoms of heart trouble, and call 9-1-1, or proceed to the closest emergency room:

  • Chest discomfort, including uncomfortable pressure, squeezing, fullness or pain. Most heart attacks involve persistent discomfort in the center of the chest, or chest pain that goes away and comes back again.
  • Pain or discomfort in the upper body area, including one or both arms, the back, neck, jaw or stomach. 
  • Shortness of breath with or without chest discomfort.  
  • A cold sweat, nausea or lightheadedness
