|Listen to Your Heart|
It is important that you know the warning signs of a heart attack, because every second counts. Your knowledge may save the life of your wife or husband, your mother or father, your friend or co-worker or even your own. If you or someone close to you has symptoms of a heart attack, call 911. Do not drive to the hospital.
Lincoln Fire & Rescue ambulances are equipped with EKG machines that can send your heart tracings to Saint Elizabeth. When a heart attack is detected, the Emergency Room physician activates the Cardiac Alert system, which notifies the cardiologist and the cardiac team. This saves precious minutes and preserves heart muscle.
