The sooner a person seeks medical attention for symptoms of an impending heart attack, the more likely it is that the person will survive. Do not try to tough it out, or wait and hope that the discomfort that you are feeling will go away. There is never any harm in seeing the doctor, and having her tell you that you are fine. However, if you don’t see a physician, there is a fairly good chance that the heart attack will kill you. Don’t risk it.


One of the issues that contributes to the complexity of patients is the instability of clinical presentation. Diagnoses are made cross-sectionally, but disease and disorder often change over time. The customer who wants a pickle one week usually has the same presnetation the next week.
