"While I agree that it is annoying to have some one on the cell phone while I am admitting them to the ICU. The reason the news tells you to call 911 when you have chest pain is that your chance of having an arrhythmia (bad heart rhythm) that can render you unconscious goes up exponentially while you are having a heart attack. People often don't feel awful especially after treatment when having a heart attack, but I don't want to discourage them from calling 911. Thanks Carol RN Denver Co."
