What is the immediate emergency medical intervention for a Myocardial Infarction patient?

The first process of treatment for a myocardial infarction (heart attack) is to diagnose its exact cause and location. It must be determined whether it is a blockage or death of the heart tissue before the appropriate treatment can be prescribed. This often involves the use of medical scans and imagery. It only takes a few minutes to pinpoint the exact location of the problem and for the surgeon or doctor to begin medical/surgical intervention. From a first aid point of view, the first medical intervention is to monitor the patient closely, start cardiopulmonary resuscitation if necessary and call for an ambulance immediately.

If a debt is sold to another company for collection does it take another 7 years from the transfer of debt for it to come off your credit report in California?

The date of first delinquency should be the date that starts the clock for the 7 years. Meaning if you went 30 days late in April 2005, on a credit card, and then 60, 90 then 120, then the account would go to charge off status but the date of first delinquency would be April 2005. In CA, 4 years from the date of first delinquency is within the statute of limitations is in effect that a creditor or collection agency can sue you for the amount owed. This will vary from state to state, If the collection agency sells the collection to another collection company, the start date is the date of first delinquency, April 2005. If the collection agency changes the date, that is called re-aging and is illegal unless you set up new terms with collection agency
