- Act in Time to Heart Attack Signs
The National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI), part of the National Institutes of Health, designed this Web page as part of a campaign to increase awareness of the need to act fast when someone may be having a heart attack. Fast action can save lives and limit damage to the heart. Each year, about 1.1 million Americans suffer a heart attack. About 460,000 of those heart attacks are fatal. Those figures would change if more Americans got to a hospital as fast as possible when a heart attack happened.

- Know Stroke. Know the Signs. Act in Time!
Recognize the symptoms of a stroke - brain attack - and get to a hospital quickly. Getting treatment within 60 minutes can prevent disability. Stroke is the third leading cause of death in the United States and a leading cause of serious, long-term disability in adults. About 600,000 new strokes are reported in the U.S. each year. The good news is that treatments are available that can greatly reduce the damage caused by a stroke. The mission of NINDS - National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke - is to reduce the burden of neurological disease. This website presents detail information on strokes, the signs and symptoms, different types of strokes (ischemic and hemorrhagic), treatment and above all the need to act fast.
