Ambulance call is a lifesaver not an embarrassment

Oh no. What’s that pain. Is it my heart? No, it couldn’t be.

It will pass. I could call 9-1-1. No. No ambulance. Can’t do that. The sirens. Neighbors rushing over. Too embarrassing. Maybe I’ll feel better later.

Regretfully, some people would rather die than call for an ambulance. So that’s exactly what they do.

Early symptoms are often ignored and puts people at risk for significant damage to the heart muscle, even death. Heart attacks have “beginnings” that can occur weeks before the actual attack. Be aware of pressure, not necessarily pains in the chest. Don’t try to rationalize it away as something else. Your body, like the engine in your car, is trying to tell you something is wrong.
