“I was supposed to work until 3:15 p.m., and I wasn’t feeling good,” remembers Stenman. “It felt like I was breathing cold air — that kind of sharp cold you feel when you go outside and it’s below zero.” He finished his shift and after clocking out, realized that something was definitely off. So, he went to Employee Health. “The nurse came around the corner and said, ‘Any sort of chest pain and we need to send you to the ER.’”
“They put an EKG on me right away and when the ER doctor came in, he told me my EKG wasn’t normal,” recalls Stenman. After receiving blood thinners, he started to feel better. Shortly after that, he remembers Cardiologist David Miranda, MD, coming into the room and telling him he was having a heart attack and he needed to get to the Cath Lab immediately.
