In brief: First get to

A hospital via paramedics.
Second take an Aspirin if you have one available. Please chew it. Once you get admitted depending on the presentation you will get either medicaly managed to start or you will be taken to the cath lab where you will have an angiogram and possibly placement of stents or angioplasty. Once this is done the treatment once again entails medical management.
