Heart Attak

Were you looking for information about a Heart Attack? Heart attak is a common misspelling of heart attack.
 
A heart attack occurs when an area of heart muscle dies or is permanently damaged by a lack of blood and oxygen. People who are experiencing one may have chest discomfort, shortness of breath, or pain in one or both arms, the left shoulder, neck, jaw, or back. In many cases, people wait two hours or more after their symptoms begin before they seek medical help. This delay can result in death or lasting heart damage.
