nausea … shortness of breath … fatigue … profuse sweating
Heart attacks strike men and women in different ways, and no two heart
attacks are alike. So if you experience any of the signs or symptoms of
heart attack – take an aspirin and call 9-1-1 immediately. There is
no time to waste.
King’s Daughters main hospital in Ashland has been continuously accredited
as a Chest Pain Center by the American College of Cardiology/Society for
Cardiovascular Patient Care. The hospital is fully equipped and ready
to handle the most complex of heart attacks.
We were the first hospital in this region to meet the society’s high
standards, in 2004, and we’ve been continuously accredited ever since.
Our intense focus on caring for heart attack patients quickly and efficiently
makes a difference. Our average door-to-balloon (D2B) time meets, or is
better than, the 90-minute national goal.
It’s good to know that when minutes count, King’s Daughters
is committed to quick care … and our experts make the most of every second.
