WHAT TO DO DURING A HEART ATTACK AND WHAT ARE HEART ATTACK SYMPTOMS:
if you think you or someone you know is currently having a heart attack, please call 999 or emergency services for an ambulance immediately. It can be a life-threatening situation, where every minute counts, so do not delay. Even if you are unsure, they will be able to assess and instruct you on the best immediate advice. This video is only for educational purposes so please do not use it in the place of calling for help.
You should call 999 immediately if you think you or someone else is having a heart attack.
• Chest Pain
• Pain that radiates from the chest to include the arms, neck, jaw and/or back
• Feeling dizzy, nauseous or sick
• Turning pale or grey
• Feeling overwhelmed with anxiety, like a panic attack
• Coughing and wheezing
Even if you don’t have any of the above symptoms, if you are concerned it could be a heart attack or feel something is urgently not right, call 999
As you can see, a heart attack can present differently in different people, so if at any point your chest feels tight or heavy, you are experiencing shortness of breath, have radiating pain from your chest, and/or feel sick or have been sick, call 999 straight away.
If there are a mixture of the above symptoms, you must do this even if the chest pain is only mild. And even if you don’t have any of the above symptoms, if you are concerned it could be a heart attack or feel something is urgently not right, call 999. Even if it’s not a heart attack it’s better to receive help early and not risk losing precious time. The sooner help can arrive, the greater the chance of survival and recovery.

CARDIAC ARREST CHEST COMPRESSIONS (CPR):
As mentioned in the video, if someone is having a heart attack, you should stay with them and watch for any signs of cardiac arrest, such as them losing consciousness or stopping breathing. In a situation like this, it’s vital that you immediately start something called CPR. Call 999 and let them know the person has lost consciousness, and they will be able to guide you through this process.
For ADULTS: You will then need to use your body weight to press down 5-6cm, which is about two inches, into their chest. Try and do 100 to 120 compressions a minute, which is about two compressions a second, and you want to do this until an ambulance arrives. There’s a great video from the British Heart Foundation on how to do this properly: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8y9zfEuzK7Q
