Heart Attack

Heart Attack is a medical emergency in which the supply of blood to the heart is suddenly and severely reduced or cut off, causing the muscle to die from lack of oxygen. More than 1.1 million people experience a heart attack each year, and for many of them, the attack is their first symptom of coronary artery disease.

Symptoms: Common symptoms include:

  • Faintness
  • Sudden sweating
  • Nausea
  • Chest pain, pressure, tightness, heaviness with or without radiation to neck or left extremity
Heart Failure

Heart Failure occurs when the heart muscle fails to pump as much blood as the body needs. The faulty pumping means the body doesn't get the oxygen it needs, blood backs up in the veins and lungs and other changes occur that make the heart even weaker.

Symptoms: Common symptoms include:

  • Wheezing and spasms of the airways similar to asthma
  • Tiring easily
  • A dry, hacking cough, especially when lying down
  • Difficulty breathing with least amount of activity or when lying flat
