A heart attack is a medical emergency. If you experience these symptoms (chest crushing pain, heavy arms, ​shortness of breath), immediately call an ambulance to take you to a hospital. Make sure you and your family can recognise the signs of a stroke since prompt treatment means the best chance for optimal recovery. 

Not every emergency department can offer you the same timely state-of-the-art diagnostic testing and on-site treatment options that are available at Aga Khan University Hospital. ​​​
