Below are some of the major heart attack signs in men. It’s important for men, who tend to ignore health issues, to understand these warning when they happen, and to act quickly to get care. In this video clip Dr. Theodore Schreiber, an interventional cardiologist and President of DMC Cardiovascular Institute, talks about the importance of getting to the hospital quickly once these signs have been recognized.
Signs of a heart attack
Learn the signs, but remember this: Even if you're not sure it's a heart attack, have it checked out (tell a doctor about your symptoms). Minutes matter! Fast action can save lives — maybe your own. Don't wait more than five minutes to call 9-1-1 or your emergency response number.
