Heart disease causes approximately 1 in every 4 deaths in the U.S., with about 50% of sudden cardiac deaths occurring outside of a hospital. These finding suggest, that many people do not act when experiencing early warning signs. Survey results show that only 27% of respondents were aware of all major signs and symptoms, and knew to call 9-1-1.

The Chest Pain Center at JFK Medical Center is the first in Palm Beach County to receive full accreditation by the Society of Chest Pain Centers, demonstrating expertise and commitment to providing quality patient care, by meeting or exceeding a wide range of criteria and completing on-site evaluations by a review team from the Society of Chest Pain Centers.

The goal of the Society of Chest Pain Centers is to significantly reduce the mortality rate of patients with chest pain by teaching the public to recognize and react to early signs and symptoms of a possible heart attack, essentially reducing the time it takes to receive treatment, increasing accuracy and effectiveness.

Early Heart Attack Care (EHAC)

EHAC or Early Heart Attack Care encourages early recognition of heart attacks, when symptoms are mild and in the beginning phases. For the 50% of people experiencing these symptoms, the heart attack can be prevented with early treatment, before damage occurs to the heart. HEART attacks have beginnings, with symptoms sometimes occurring 2 weeks prior to a major event. 85% of heart damage occurs within the first 2 hours of a blockage. Heart attack deaths kill 800,000 people per year in the U.S., but with your help, that number can be cut in half. Know the signs and symptoms and act FAST- Call 9-1-1.

Early Signs and Symptoms

People may or may not experience any early signs or symptoms of a heart attack. These symptoms may come and go until becoming constant and severe, for example, one may experience mild chest symptoms, such as pressure, burning, aching or tightness. One can also experience nausea, feeling of fullness, shortness of breath, back pain, chest pressure, squeezing or discomfort, anxiety, fatigue, jaw pain or pain that travels down one or both arms.

If you experience any of these symptoms - DON'T DRIVE - CALL 9-1-1 immediately. Your fast response could save a life.
