can some tell me what angina is an the first aid

Dec 24th, 2014

First Aid for Angina :

  • Sit the casualty down and make them feel comfortable. Do not allow them to walk around. A half sitting position is often the best.
  • Allow the patient to have their own nitro-glycerin medications if they have.
  • Reassure the casualty. Remove any cause of stress or anxiety if possible.
  • If you suspect heart attack – check the casualty is not allergic to aspirin, then allow them to chew the aspirin tablet slowly. Record the time and strength of the tablet. Pass this information to the paramedics or doctor.
  • If you suspect a heart attack or in case of angina, if the angina pain is not relieved by nitro-glycerin and rest after 15 minutes call the emergency ambulance at once.
  • Monitor the pulse and breathing. Be prepared to resuscitate till the ambulance arrives.


Hope this helps. Please best my answer :)
