Know the Warning Signs of a Heart Attack

  • Uncomfortable pressure, fullness, squeezing or pain in the center of the chest lasting more than a few minutes.
  • Pain that spreads to the shoulders, neck, jaw or arms
  • Chest discomfort with light-headness, fainting, sweating, nausea or shortness of breath

Not all of these signals occur in every attack. If some occur, get help fast: get medical attention immediately by calling 911 for emergency rescue. Many ambulances can transmit your heart rhythm ahead to the hospital, enabling an emergency department doctor to prepare the facility for your arrival and expedite care, saving heart muscle.

At Tanner, we offer certified chest pain centers in Carrollton and Villa Rica, backed with state-of-the-art, non-surgical interventional cardiac care.
