| | Did my husband have a heart attack ??
Thanking you in advance...for any help. Last week
my husband starting feeling extreme pain in his chest,
and then started to perspire, I called 911. When the
ambulance arrived they immediately took him to the
ER....while in the ambulance, he started vomiting,
his heart rate dropped, his blood pressure dropped,
they gave him nitro, and started IV's with heprin and
regular fluids. When we arrived at the ER his heart rate was low, his blood pressure very low. They called
in a cardiologist, he set up a cardiac cath and a room
in the CCU...While waiting in the ER he had what I
thought was another heart attack. All his vital signs
dropped, he was turning an ash color, they gave him
atrophine ??....he then went to the cath lab, the
cardiologist could find nothing wrong, no blockage,
no damage, they kept him in the hospital for about
6 hours and then sent him home..
Can anyone tell me what happened ??? If it wasn't
a heart attack...what was it ????
I'm so afraid its going to happen again, and I won't
know what to do.....
Thank you for any help....
