Cardiovascular Health Reports and Resources
Heart attack and stroke are time sensitive emergencies that require rapid evaluation by trained medical professionals. There are treatment options for both stroke and heart attack that may help to lead to a full recovery. These treatments can only be offered in specific time windows. That’s why it is so important to call 911 and seek care as soon as symptoms begin. Minnesotans can rest assured that the healthcare system is safe, prepared and equipped to treat patients experiencing any medical emergencies.
