Did you know that 85% of heart damage occurs within the first two hours of a heart attack. Early Heart Attack Care is knowing the subtle danger signs of a heart attack and acting immediately - before heart damage occurs.

Alarming statistics:

Heart disease causes approximately 1 of every 4 deaths in the United States.

About 50% of sudden cardiac deaths occur outside of a hospital. This suggests that many people don't act on early warning signs.

Survey results show that only 27% of the respondents were aware of all the major symptons and knew to call 9-1-1.
