Education and Support

The heart is an amazing organ that continuously pumps blood to nourish and provide energy to the body. It works ceaselessly, beating about 3 billion times during an average lifetime. The heart is a very complicated organ, but taking care of it can be simple.

Premier Health provides various educational and support programs, tools, information, and links for individuals that have been touched by heart disease.

Heart Attack Warning Signs

Not all heart attacks are the same. Some are sudden, dramatic, and leave no doubt that the victim is in trouble. Other heart attacks are subtle, quiet, and with little or no pain. Both can cause a lot of damage and even death. Knowing the signs of a heart attack and getting help quickly may save your life…or someone else's. Learn more.

Staying Alive

Many people who experience a heart attack at home, work, or in public location die because they don’t receive immediate CPR from someone on the scene. If you were a bystander, would you be prepared to act? Learn about the American Heart Association’s Hands Only CPROff Site Icon.
