Recognise the symptoms of heart attack.

Too many people don’t recognise the symptoms of a heart attack, which may include light-headedness, chest pain that may spread to the jaw, neck or back, cold sweats, heartburn, abdominal pain, shortness of breath, fatigue and nausea. In the UK, a recent survey among over 500 heart attack survivors revealed that 80 percent didn’t realise that they were having a heart attack and a third mistook their symptoms for indigestion. Understanding the signs is crucial, because the sooner a patient receives medical treatment the better their chances of recovery.
