Emergency Medicine

Interior Content
In a heart attack or stroke emergency, seconds count - even during a pandemic. That’s why the American College of Cardiology, American Heart Association, the American College of Emergency Physicians and the physicians of the Christ Hospital are urging anyone experiencing signs of a heart attack or stroke to seek treatment immediately.
