Don’t Die of Doubt

Heart attacks and strokes don’t stop for COVID-19. During this uncertain time, the American Heart Association and our local sponsor Sutter Health Heart & Vascular Institute are working tirelessly to reduce the impact of COVID-19 in communities across the country by educating the public that the hospital is the safest place to receive treatment when experiencing a heart attack or stroke, even during a pandemic.

Heart attack and stroke symptoms are always urgent. Don’t hesitate to call 9-1-1. Don’t stay home.

Know the signs and symptoms of a heart attack and stroke.

Heart Attack

  • Chest discomfort that can feel like pressure, squeezing, fullness or pain
  • Pain or discomfort in one or both arms, the back, neck, jaw or stomach
  • Shortness of breath
  • Other signs may include a cold sweat, nausea or lightheadedness.

Stroke, act “F.A.S.T”

  • F - Face drooping on one side or numb
  • A - Arm weakness
  • S - Speech that’s slurred, difficulty speaking
  • T – Time to call 911
The American Heart Association recommends that you be aware of five key numbers: Total Cholesterol, HDL (good) Cholesterol, Blood Pressure, Blood Sugar and Body Mass Index (BMI). These numbers are important because they will allow you and your healthcare provider to determine your risk for developing Cardiovascular Disease by Atherosclerosis.
