48 yr old Jason had not been feeling well all day and around 10pm he went to bed. At around 4am his wife awakened to see him slump to the floor, breathing with difficulty and drenched in perspiration. Alarmed when he told her of the pain in his chest, neck and arm, she called 911. Within 12 minutes, EMTs were on the scene.
The EMT performed the standard protocol for a patient with symptoms of a myocardial infarction.

Doctors, please tell me what symptoms Jason exhibits and what would you do for your initial assessment and initial treatment to poor Jason.
