Acute MI is a devastating condition which can happen anywhere. The affected person has to relax and sit if he is standing or walking and avoid exertion.

If the patient has an access to aspirin, he should take one tablet completely chewable and if the person is a known case of heart disease, he should take one sorbitrate and if his condition improves should visit the doctor immediately.
