The New Pandemic Threat: People May Die Because They’re Not Calling 911 There has been a dramatic decrease in Myocardial Infarction presentations worldwide during the current COVID – 19 Pandemic.

Key Points:

  • There has been a dramatic decrease in Myocardial Infarction presentations worldwide during the current COVID – 19 Pandemic.
  • Multiple reasons for the reduction in infarctions have been postulated but a worrisome and likely significant one is that patients don’t seek care promptly, if at all for symptoms of a heart attack.
  • This “New Pandemic Treat” Statement is signed by multiple organizations and is directed to patients – emphasizing the importance of immediately seeking treatment for important heart attack and stroke symptoms.
  • Perhaps as physicians are communicating with patients remotely, healthcare professionals might consider downloading and distributing this statement to their patients to combat an important, “indirect” COVID – 19 risk!
  • Pass this statement on – its an inexpensive but important “Vaccine” – A 911 Call.
