There are about 700,000 cases of heart attack each year in China, but only 350,000 of all the patients get proper treatment in time, according to Chinese Medical Doctor Association.

During a news conference recently in Beijing, Zhang Yanling, president of the association, Huo Yong, chairmen of cardiovascular medicine with Peking University First Hospital and other experts shared their opinions on how to deal with the situation, such as establishing first-aid networks.

Experts and government officials also participated in the discussion through remote video conference technology.

The association released three health educational videos on heart attack, which aim to improve the public's knowledge on heart attack early symptoms, and raise people’s awareness of the threat.
