Four Symptoms to Look for Right Before a Heart Attack

Four Symptoms to Look for Right Before a Heart Attack

 Nearly 1,000,000 Americans suffer their first heart attack every year. Almost 500,000 suffer their second, sometimes third heart attack annually. Of these, 25% happen with no warning signs or obvious symptoms. They are called “Silent Killers”.

The scary thing is, even if there are symptoms, they can be so mild or seemingly unrelated, they don’t connect the two… unless they are made aware of what to look for.

Four signs have been identified as the most important in recognizing a silent heart attack.

These four things are the focus of a recent video presentation by renowned cardiovascular expert Dr. Chauncey Crandall: Silent Heart Attacks:. According to Dr. Crandall, the reason silent heart attacks go untreated is because people don’t even notice the symptoms, so he created a special video presentation to show the four things to look for that may be a silent warning — before it’s too late to intervene and survive the damage.

 

Timing is everything. It is the critical factor for survival. The longer time passes between the first symptomand receiving care, the more chance of disability or death.

Knowing what to look for is crucial, especially when people don’t relate those symptoms to a heart attack.

The video above, first created as an education tool quickly went viral and had over 5 million views in a few short months. Heart attacks are the #1 killer in America and when education is prevention in many cases, people need to know. People want to know.

This video shows real-life, preventable heart attacks, that ended in death. Scary, but eye opening.

Dr. Crandall, chief of the cardiac transplant program at Palm Beach Cardiovascular Clinic in Florida, practices on the front lines of interventional, vascular, and transplant cardiology. After years of experience, Dr. Crandall has been able to detect little-known warning signs and symptoms like the four he addresses.

“I think the real value in this presentation is the number of simple strategies he outlines to help prevent heart disease,” says Davis, “strategies that many doctors just don’t take the time to discuss with patients until they’re already showing obvious symptoms of cardiovascular stress.”

Almost every American has been touched by this disease, either directly or through a loved one. If watching this video can prevent another tragic story, another preventable “widow maker”, than it is our duty to not only watch and learn, but also to share and help educate.

You never know when or how a Heart Attack can affect your life.
