When you have a heart attack, minutes count. The sooner blood flow is restored, the less damage there is to heart muscle, and the greater the chance of survival. When it comes to heart attack, time is muscle. Restoring blood flow quicker gives the heart muscle a better chance to recover and avoid permanent damage.
