If I am having a heart attack should I get an electric shock to reactivate my heart? employee?

I think you only use a defibrilator if the heart has completely stopped

thats up to the emts if they think you need one

Electric shock via a defibrillator only assists if your heart is fibrillating.
This is not always what occurrs in a "heart attack".
If there is no heart beat then chest compressions are recommende.
If an automatic defibillator is attached it should only be activated as instructed.

No. That's for if your heart has stopped beating. The best thing is to call 911 and take an aspirin. Nitro can help but I don't like taking it because of the headache it gives me.

No, chest compressions are enough.
