We might have seen in so many movies that an elderly person hears a shocking news and immediately has severe chest pain with profuse sweating. He clutches his chest in severe pain and is immediately shifted to a hospital ICU.The doctor steps out of the ICU and tells his family members that the elderly person has a major heart attack.

 

But the trouble is, in real-life, heart attack symptoms don't always announce themselves so dramatically. Hence, many people wait for hours before seeking medical help. This can be a fatal mistake. Early treatment not only minimizes heart damage, but it can also save one's life.
