This easy-to-read brochure covers the steps you can take to help someone survive a heart attack. It lists heart attack warning signs and common reasons people may delay in seeking care. It dispels a common misunderstanding about the "movie heart attack"; outlines the steps in making a heart attack survival plan; describes who is at risk for a heart attack; and gives sources of further information. As a handy reference, the back panel features a tear-off card with space to record essential medical information.
