What Can You Do If You Witness Someone Have A Heart Attack And Stop Breathing
Call 911: If you know CPR start it after calling 911. If there is an automatic defibrillator nearby send someone to get it or get it yourself. This will talk you through what to do. Even if you don't know cpr, doing chest compressions quickly (about 100 per minute) until help arrives may save someone's life. Better yet, learn CPR and take refresher courses every 2 years. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

You : You may be experiencing panic attacks. Panic attacks usually last ten minutes or less. Some possible symptoms which might make you think you are having a panic attack include: chest pain or chest tightness; a pounding or rapid heartbeat, rapid or difficult breathing, nausea, sweating or numbness / tingling in your lips or fingers/ toes. People often believe that they are having a heart attack during an episode of panic. Other symptoms can include feeling very afraid and / or anxious; trembling, feeling really hot or cold or feeling dizzy or faint. If a person wakes up in the middle of the night gasping for air then they might be experiencing sleep apnea. I can not diagnose you. You should see your doctor for a full medical evaluation, to ensure that these symptoms are not due to a medical condition. If you do in fact have panic attacks, there are medications which can be prescribed to help and you can also see a psychologist to learn ways to control or prevent these symptoms that do not require medications. Good luck. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

To be checked right away for a heart attack. That means not waiting at home to see if it turns into a bad heart attack. There will be some false alarms, but as the saying goes, "better safe than sorry". ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
