What to do When Someone Has a Heart Attack
Many people panic when faced with a crisis. If you are with someone who you think may be having a heart attack, or if you are on the phone with a loved one who may be having a heart attack, you need to know what to do.
If you are witnessing a possible heart attack, you will want to take the following actions:
Call 911. Assume it is a heart attack, even if you aren’t sure. Give the address where the person is and tell the 911 operator that you need an ambulance rushed to the site for a heart attack evaluation.
Feed the person an aspirin (crushed up) with water. If on the phone, tell them to eat an aspirin, if they are strong enough to get up and get one. Make sure they drink water with it so they do not choke on the aspirin. This is to thin their blood, just in case they have a blood clot that is causing the heart attack or a similar condition (stroke, pulmonary embolism.)
Have the person lie down in a comfortable position so as to not stress the heart. Talk to the person soothingly so they will relax. It is important to help them stress as little as is possible. Assure them everything will be alright.
Stay with them (or on the phone with them) until the ambulance arrives. If the person stops breathing or passes out, perform mouth-to-mouth resuscitation or CPR, if you know how to do so properly.
After a Heart Attack
After a person has been taken to the hospital and admitted, you will want to help this person by doing the following:
Contact loved ones with the news so the person can get the support he or she will need.
Look for the person’s insurance information to make sure this gets filed properly.
Find out if the person needs any children or pets care and set up support for this person.
Talk to health officials about how you can support the patient. You may need to leave them be and not visit for a while, or the patient may have suffered a mild heart attack and may be ready for visitors and support right away.
Be patient. It may take a while for the patient to be strong enough to speak or answer questions or even have visitors.
Prepare for lifestyle changes and medical needs that may be required after the hospital stay is over. Look into support resources if you are responsible for caring for the patient and will need help.
