If you experience symptoms of a heart attack or stroke, seek immediate medical attention
With hospitals across Oregon focused on people who have developed COVID-19, some people with unrelated but still urgent health problems are hesitant about going to emergency rooms.
Emergencies don’t stop for COVID-19, and certain heart and stroke symptoms need immediate medical attention.
– Heart attacks can be sudden and intense. But most start slowly, with mild pain and discomfort in one or both arms, the back, neck or jaw; and shortness of breath.
– Sudden face drooping, weakness in an arm or leg, or speech difficulty are stroke symptoms.
Call 911 if you experience any of these symptoms.
