Physicians from Cardiology Specialists of Central Maryland explain why it is vital to call 9-1-1 if you are experiencing heart attack symptoms.

Learn about the life-saving PAAMI (Primary Angioplasty for Acute Myocardial Infarction) program at Howard County General Hospital. HCGH created the PAAMI program to treat patients showing signs of myocardial infarction, or heart attack, within 90 minutes of the patient's arrival at the hospital. In order to meet this commitment, a specially-trained cardiology team of interventional cardiologists, nurses and technologists is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
