About half of adults do not know the most common symptoms of heart attack

U.S. News & World Report (2/7, Galvin) reports that although “most people know what to do if they see someone having a heart attack – call 911 – about half of adults don’t know the five most common symptoms, according to a survey from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.” Additionally, “awareness also varied by demographic group and cardiovascular risk, highlighting the need for targeted interventions for these groups, researchers said.” The CDC has a webpage listing the signs and symptoms of a heart attack.
