Beat Heart Attacks by Knowing Heart Attack Symptoms

Posted on October 27, 2016 and filed under Urgent Care Blog

No matter how healthy you eat, how often you exercise, or how young you may be, you can experience heart failure at any time. And all too often, the first indication of heart failure is the actual heart attack. But by knowing the symptoms of heart attack and seeking emergency medical care at the first heart attack signs, you can possibly save your life or the lives of others around you. At MD Now, we’ve seen the critical difference it can make when people seek care as soon as they experience heart attack symptoms. Knowing the heart attack signs lets you seek out treatment before it’s too late.

According to cardiovascular experts, a whopping 70% of first-time heart attacks are experienced by people who are considered to have a relatively low risk. Luckily, advances in cardiology have led to the development of screening tools and technology that can indicate a person’s risk for a heart attack.

One of these kinds of screenings is the CT scan, which can detect calcium deposits in the heart’s arteries to show a person’s likelihood of having a heart attack. In addition, vascular screenings can analyze the blood flow in other areas of the body to gauge how well the heart is functioning. Both of these screenings are fast, easy, and painless and can alert people to their heart attack risk and increase their awareness of their personal heart health.

At MD Now, we encourage you to have these screenings. And, seeking medical attention at the first symptoms of a heart attack by calling 911 or visiting the closet ER can be a life-saving decision.
