– Patient, sometimes that’s
the worst case scenario. Patient come in, present
with a heart attack, and heart attack, what it
means is that basically you have a total occlusion, blockage of one of the blood supply,
to the heart muscle, and so, people usually present
because of severe chest pain, and those are emergency situations. You go to the emergency room, we basically put you on medication. Usually IV Heparin,
Asprin, things like that, and then we take you to the Cath Lab, and then that’s when
we start the procedure. We start to look at your blood vessels, and see where the problem is, and to unblock the blood supply. Basically, that’s what we do, but the most important
thing, the most crucial thing for patient, from the patient stand point, is that they have to get to
the emergency room in time, and I don’t mean by driving
to the emergency room. Basically call 911. Get
the ambulance to get you where you supposed to go, and that is the most
important thing to do. To get medical care immediately, when you have these symptoms
that is not normal for you.
