Tag Archives: Heart Attacks

This morning.

Via The Irish Times:

Calling for help immediately when symptoms of a heart attack begin results in faster treatment and improved outcomes, according to a new report.

Only 37 per cent of patients suffering a major heart attack – known as an ST elevation myocardial infarction or Stemi – sought medical help within 60 minutes of onset of their symptoms, according to the audit of services by the National Office of Clinical Audit (Noca).

Ringing 112 or 999 as soon as anyone experiences the symptoms of a heart attack ensures the ambulance crew can diagnose a serious heart attack and transfer the person to the appropriate specialised treatment centre.

Good advice.

Ah here.

Blame it on the moonlight

Blame it on the good times.

Do not, under any circumstances, blame it on the experimental, gene-altering, clot-making boogie.

Emil Palsson fell over in the 12th minute of the match against Stjordals-Blink at the Fosshaugane Campus stadium in western Norway.

Via News9Live:

Icelandic midfielder Emil Palsson collapsed during a football game in Norway’s second division Monday evening after suffering a cardiac arrest, his football club Sogndal said.

“Emil Palsson had a cardiac arrest in the 12th minute of play. Palsson was successfully resuscitated, and then flown to Haukeland Hospital for further examination and treatment,” club Sogndal Fotball said in a statement.

In June, a similar event occurred when Denmark’s Christian Eriksen suddenly collapsed from a cardiac arrest during his country’s opening Euro 2020 game against Finland.
