Early Heart Attack Care
What is EHAC?
EHAC or “Early Heart Attack Care” is three things:
1. A campaign intended to educate everyone as to the early symptoms of a heart attack in order to prevent the heart attack from ever occurring. Preventing the heart attack prevents heart damage.
2. A plea to the public to be responsible, not only for themselves, but for those around them who may be experiencing early heart attack symptoms, and to help them obtain immediate treatment.
3. A public education program that concentrates on the benefits of receiving early treatment, and activating emergency medical services.
What makes the EHAC campaign different?
Unlike most programs that promote recognition of the signs and symptoms of an impending heart attack, the EHAC initiative encourages early recognition when symptoms may be mild. For the 50% of people experiencing these symptoms, the heart attack can be prevented with early treatment - BEFORE ANY DAMAGE TO THE HEART CAN OCCUR!
