Have a heart, call an ambulance
September 2016

September 29 is World Heart Day 2016. Despite recommendations that all patients experiencing signs of heart attack should call an ambulance, 1 in 2 heart attack patients did not arrive at the hospital by ambulance.

If you were experiencing shortness of breath, sweating, nausea or light-headedness — common signs of a heart attack — would you call an ambulance?
