Why Call 911?

By calling 911 your treatment can begin earlier. Time is muscle. Act fast!

85% of muscle damage takes place within the first hour. This is often referred to as the “golden hour.” It is within this timeframe that the heart vessel needs to be opened. Click here and learn more about the importance of calling 911.

Did You Know Heart Attacks Have Beginnings?

These "beginnings" occur in over 50% of patients. Most importantly, if recognized in time, these “beginnings” can be treated before the heart is damaged! Click here and learn more.
