What to Do in a Medical Emergency (possible heart attack)

14 Aug

Possible heart attack:  In the event of chest pain or other symptoms of a heart attack (like jaw pain, shortness of breath, nausea), have the person sit down. “The slightest exertion could make it worse,” Singletary says. Then if there’s aspirin available, have them chew a full 325 mg dose, which accelerates its absorption into the bloodstream. Stay close by until help arrives.
