7 Game on Every 20 seconds, a person in the united states has a heart attack Every minute 3 people die of a heart attack 4 out of 10 people who have an attack will die from it At least 250,000 people die of heart attacks each year before they reach the hospital Explain the game thing…stand up if u have number/color whatever—just had a heart attack The first 10 people who arrived received a card..Will the 10 of you please raise it in the air just for this visual of this population these 10 just had a heart attack if u are holding a red card please stand up—these 4 represent the 4 people just had a heart attack and died do any of you that are standing know anyone that has had a heart attack or died from it? some people get caught up in the numbers and think that it cant happen to me but this is just to show u that this is real..even at mt zion

8 What is a heart attack? When a blood clot or other blockage cuts blood flow to a part of your heart Pic&feature=player_embedded What kind of sign and symptoms did u notice? I know this video focuses on women but men can experience the same symptoms. What kind did u notice?

9 signs & symptoms Pressure, a feeling of fullness or a squeezing pain in the center of your chest that lasts for more than a few minutes Pain extending beyond your chest to your shoulder, arm, back, or even to your teeth and jaw Prolonged pain in the upper abdomen Shortness of breath Cold sweat Nausea and vomiting Lightheadedness Fatigue Brain death and pernament brain death start to occur within 4-6 minutes after cardiac arrest. Cardiac arrest can be reversed if treated within minutes with an electric shock to the heart to restore normal heartbeat (AED). With every minute that passes without CPR and defribrilation the chance of survival is reduced 7-10% and after 10 minutes without intervention, few attempts at resuscitation succeed. -bystander recognition of s/s of cardiac arrest and immediate call to 911 are critical --

10 AED POLICY & how to act! On website under health ministries on the right side: d_policy.pdf Call 911 Get the AED Bring red AED box to victim Turn on AED Follow verbal commands from AED Crowd control- listen to ushers commands in event of cardiac arrest CPR and AED should begin immediately—say the policy is online and go over it— --recommendations for CPR include high quality chest compressions by pushing hard and fast in middle of chest with minimal interruptions
