Heart Attack Help
Dr. Oz’s Don’t Do not delay calling 911 to take or help administer an aspirin, especially if you are the victim. You could collapse before you get to the phone.
Dr. Oz’s Do Call 911 immediately to ensure that emergency workers equipped with oxygen, medication and a defibrillator are on their way to treat you. Next, take a full-strength aspirin.
