PRNewswire-USNewswire/ — Heart disease is the number one cause of death in the United States, killing more than 630,000 people a year. February is American Heart Month, an opportunity for the nation’s emergency physicians to reiterate the importance of knowing the early warning signs of a heart attack and calling 911 or going to the emergency department once you first notice them. “Emergency physicians save lives every day and provide quality, lifesaving care to thousands of patients each year with heart attack symptoms,” said Dr. Angela Gardner, president of the American College of Emergency Physicians. “But saving a life in this case must start with that patient picking up on the warning signs immediately and quickly summoning help.”
