Even though he was only 56 years old, Dennis knew that the heavy pressure he was feeling in his chest was probably a heart attack. A call to 911 was all it took to put the lifesaving process in motion. Paramedics arrived at his home in just a few minutes. An EKG confirmed he was having a heart attack and the results were faxed to the hospital. By the time he arrived at Penrose Hospital, the heart team was waiting for him.
