I am a cardiologist at a tertiary center and have extensive experience taking care of patients with heart attack. I am very familiar with this kind of scenario, and I have written book chapters on this topic. My research also focuses on this topic, and I have published several papers that examine this issue. Waiting too long to administer treatment to a patient exhibiting symptoms of a heart attack can cause the damage to the heart to extend and can get to a point that any intervention would become futile. At that point, the damage is irreversible.
