Living 4 Zachary: Knowing the difference.. SCA and Heart Attack

“Do you honestly know the difference? Many people don’t. They assume that SCA (Sudden Cardiac Arrest) is the same as a Heart Attack. The truth could save your life or save the life of someone you love according to the Sudden Cardiac Arrest Foundation.

The medical term for heart attack is myocardial infarction. A heart attack is also sometimes called a coronary thrombosis or coronary occlusion. A heart attack is referred to as a “plumbing problem”. The person having the heart attack is usually awake and at times can talk.

Warning Signs of a Heart Attack are: (but not limited to)
Chest Discomfort
Discomfort in arms, back, neck and jaw”
