You can take charge of your heart health. To help you accomplish this, Spartanburg Regional Heart Center provides educational materials. Learn the early warning signs of a heart attack and ways to reduce your risk of heart disease.
Early Heart Attack Care
To empower and educate our community about heart attacks, we support a national program called Early Heart Attack Care (EHAC). As a nationally accredited Chest Pain Center, we have partnered with the American College of Cardiology to support this program.
To help save you or a loved one’s life:
- Learn the early signs of heart attack
- Call 9-1-1 immediately if you or others experience these signs or symptoms
- Learn hands-only CPR
- Make lifestyle modifications to reduce your risk for heart disease
If you, a friend or a loved one is experiencing early heart attack symptoms, do not drive to the hospital. Call 9-1-1 immediately. Emergency responders can provide lifesaving treatment to restore blood flow to the heart. Additionally, the EMS team can run tests that help your doctor to reach a diagnosis quickly.
Spartanburg Regional EMS personnel work with our emergency department and cardiac care teams to share critical information with the hospital before your arrival. This allows the team to prepare for your arrival and speed up treatment once you are at the hospital — often bypassing the emergency room and going straight to the heart catheterization lab.
