How to Survive a Heart Attack when Alon

1Know the most common symptoms. The most obvious and most common symptom of a heart attack is chest pain or discomfort, but there are other typical symptoms you should be aware of, too.Chest discomfort usually occurs in the center of the chest. It could also be described as heaviness, tightness, pressure, aching, burning, numbness, fullness, or squeezing, and the pain can either last for several minutes or go away and come back. People sometimes mistake it for indigestion or heartburn.[1]You may also experience pain or discomfort in other areas of the upper body, including the arms, left shoulder, back, neck, jaw, or stomach.Additional symptoms associated with heart attack can include:Difficulty breathingSweating or "cold" sweatingA feeling of fullness, indigestion, or chokingNausea or vomitingLight-headedness, dizziness, extreme weakness, or extreme anxietyRapid, irregular heartbeatsImage titled Survive a Heart Attack when Alone Step 2Bullet12Note that women's symptoms can differ. Even though women frequently experience chest pain and other common symptoms of heart attack, they are also more likely to experience less common symptoms, as well.These symptoms can include:Upper back pain or shoulder painJaw pain or pain that spreads to the jawPain that spreads to the armUnusual fatigue for multiple daysDifficulty sleepingUp to 78 percent of female heart attack patients have experienced at least one other common or uncommon symptom for more than one month prior to their heart attack.Image titled Survive a Heart Attack when Alone Step 33Never downplay your symptoms. People often expect heart attacks to be dramatic and instantaneous, but the truth is that many heart attacks are mild and can continue for an hour or longer. Mild heart attacks can be just as serious, though, so if you experience any of the symptoms described here for 5 minutes or longer, you should being taking steps to ensure your survival.You should try to get treatment for your heart attack within the first hour of your initial symptoms. If you wait longer than that, your heart will have more difficulty repairing the damage. The ultimate goal is to have the constricted artery back open within 90 minutes to minimize damage as much as possible.[2]People often wait to seek treatment because the symptoms vary from what they expect or because they think the symptoms are related to other health issues. They may also delay if they are young and skeptical about a heart attack happening to them or if they are in denial about the seriousness of their symptoms and trying to avoid the embarrassment of going to the hospital for a "false alarm."Part2Take ActionImage titled Survive a Heart Attack when Alone Step 41Call 9-1-1 immediately. The most important thing to do when you suspect that you are having a heart attack is to call emergency medical services.Always call 9-1-1 before you attempt to contact anyone else. This will almost always be the quickest way to get treatment, and even if you live in an area that an ambulance may have a hard time getting to, the 9-1-1 dispatcher can provide you with instructions on how to minimize the damage.Emergency help can begin treatment as soon as they arrive, which is another reason why this is a better option than calling a friend or relative for help.Image titled Survive a Heart Attack when Alone Step 52Consider contacting someone to come over immediately. If you have a trustworthy neighbor or relative who lives nearby, make another phone call asking that person to come meet you. Having another person nearby can be helpful if you suddenly go into cardiac arrest.You should only do this if the 9-1-1 dispatcher gives you permission to get off the phone or if you have a second line you can call on while the dispatcher stays on the first line.Do not rely on another person to get you to the hospital unless instructed to do so by the 9-1-1 dispatcher. Wait for emergency paramedics to show up.Image titled Survive a Heart Attack when Alone Step 63Chew on aspirin.[3] Chew and swallow a single 325-mg non-enteric coated aspirin tablet. This is especially effective if done within 30 minutes of your first symptoms.Aspirin inhibits platelets, which are a key component in the formation of blood clots. Taking aspirin can delay the formation of blood clots that could further block your arteries during a heart attack.Do not use enteric coated tablets since these will release too slowly to be of much use.Chew the aspirin before swallowing it. By chewing the aspirin, you release more of the medicine directly into your stomach and hasten its ability to get into your blood stream.If you are on a medication that interacts poorly with aspirin or have otherwise been told by your doctor not to take aspirin, do not use this treatment.Image titled Survive a Heart Attack when Alone Step 74Do not attempt to drive. Driving yourself to the hospital is not recommended, and if you begin to experience heart attack symptom while you are behind the wheel, you should immediately pull off to the side of the road.The only reason you should consider driving yourself to the hospital is if all other options have been completely exhausted and it is, quite literally, the only way for you to get emergency medical treatment.If you suffer from complete cardiac arrest, you will probably end up passing out. This is the main reason why driving while suffering from a heart attack is ill-advised.Image titled Survive a Heart Attack when Alone Step 8Bullet25Remain calm. As frightening as a heart attack is, rushing around or putting yourself into a state of panic can worsen the problem. Relax as much as possible to keep your heart rate steady and calm.To calm yourself down, think of a soothing memory and assure yourself that you have familiarized yourself with what you need to do and that help is on the way.Count as a way of slowing your heartbeat. Make sure that your counts are slow, and use the standard one-one-thousand, two-one-thousand, three-one-thousand... approach.Image titled Survive a Heart Attack when Alone Step 96Lie down. Lie on your back and raise your legs upward. This opens up the diaphragm, making it easier for you to breathe and supply oxygen to your blood.[4]Make the position easier to maintain by propping your legs up on pillows or another object. You could also lie down on the floor with your legs propped up on a couch or chair.If you cannot immediately lie down or sit, such as working on a ladder or crossing traffic, you make your way carefully, using the horizon and what you see to help keep yourself oriented. If you feel dizzy, or unable to walk properly, watching a fixed object such as the horizon, or a large fixed object, might help calm you and help you control the situation until help arrives.

erston and Hoxton, and, indeed, through all the vastness of London from Ealing to East Ham–people were rubbing their eyes, and opening windows to stare out and ask aimless questions.
