Rosie O’Donnell Urges Women To Call 911

Earlier this month, Rosie O’Donnell wasn’t feeling well.  Her chest ached, she was sick to her stomach and her arms hurt too.  Instead of calling 911, she took an aspirin, went to bed and phoned her doctor the next day. 

What was wrong with O’Donnell?  She suffered a heart attack and said she survived “by some miracle,”  according to an article in USA Today.  It turns out she suspected she was indeed having a heart attack but didn’t call 911.  Alot of women do the same thing.  A 2009 American Heart Association poll found that 50% of women wouldn’t call 911 if they thought they were having a heart attack.  That is not the right response if you’re having a heart attack because every minute counts.  Dr. Nakela Cook, a cardiologist in Maryland, told USA Today: “We say that literally every minute does matter in terms of the amount of recovery that might be possible.  Time is muscle.”  O’Donell is urging women not to do what she did and instead call 911.  Do you know the symptoms of a heart attack?  They include nausea, feeling dizzy or lightheaded, chest pain, feeling tired, shortness of breath and breaking out in a cold sweat.
