We’ve dedicated the month to reducing the risk of a heart attack or stroke by promoting heart healthy eating, exercise and lifestyle tips. However, another potential lifesaver is the ability to recognize the signs of a stroke or heart attack so that swift action can be taken immediately. The key is readily recognizing warning signs such as chest pain and shortness of breath. For more symptoms, visit the Heart and Stroke Foundation’s website:www.heartandstroke.ca/HeartSigns or www.heartandstroke.ca/StrokeSigns. Know the signs and don’t hesitate to call 9-1-1.
