mac file managers;serielle schnittstelle rs232 THE IMPENDING HEART ATTACK AND THE ACUTE STAGE: WHAT SHOULD THE PATIENT AND RELATIVES NOT DO?

You should not wait under any circumstances, nor delay in taking action. You must realize that 60% of all deaths caused by heart attack occur within the first few hours of the symptoms, so you should act immediately and not allow valuable time to pass without a physician's supervision. Your time of decision-making should be as short as possible.

Life-endangering arrhythmias can occur abruptly, and can be successfully treated only in a hospital. It is necessary to overcome the understandable, but futile, hope that the symptoms will disappear by themselves. Also, the desire to stay at home to avoid hospitalization and its discomforts must be suppressed. You should not take any risks, especially if you have information that the patient has sustained a previous heart attack and that this episode is a re-infarction. We cannot repeat too often that it is imperative to go directly to the hospital when a heart attack is suspected.
