Images in Jan Sieghart: Cardiac Catheterization & Open-Heart Surgery

Jan Sieghart is a retired nurse who loves walking with her husband, playing golf and making jewelry. She enjoys it all even more after having open-heart surgery at Allegiance Health.

The best chance of surviving a heart attack is to act quickly. Do not wait for symptoms to go away. Call 9-1-1 immediately, and chew an aspirin while waiting for the ambulance to arrive.
