Recognising the early signs of a heart attack can be the key to surviving without too much long-term damage. So how can you tell the difference between indigestion and a life-threatening episode?
Many people are reluctant to dial Triple Zero just in case it’s a false alarm, but lets face it, that’s the best outcome. The warning signs can differ from person to person but making yourself aware of what you should be looking out for only takes a few minutes, and could save your life.
The Heart Foundation has put together some useful information on how to recognise a heart attack, what to do if you think you’re experiencing one and what effect it can have on your heart.
