Even though it may be tempting to drive, please call 911. While the ambulance is taking you to the emergency room, the paramedics are taking an EKG, starting an IV, drawing blood, and alerting the emergency room. When you arrive you will go immediately to an ER bay. If your EKG in the ambulance shows a heart attack, the cath lab team will be activated. All this will happen BEFORE you arrive. So... SURVIVE. DON’T DRIVE. CALL 911!
