What should be done?

  • Nearly 50% of patients wait two or more hours before seeking help. Delay in treatment increases the amount lost heart muscle (which may have been saved with prompt treatment).
  • The delay raises the amount of disability and increases the risk of sudden death.
  • When a heart attack is suspected, activity should be stopped and the person must lie down and rest.
