The answer to this is B. This will help decrease the amount of oxygen the heart needs in order to keep on going. The reason why morphine is given is it will be able to get rid of the uncomfortable symptoms. There are some doctors who feel that this should not be administered to some patients because it may lower the chances of the patient from recovering.

It will still depend on the person who is suffering from this condition and the doctor who is handling the situation. This condition is described by a lot of patients who experience it as very painful and they feel that the tightness in their chest is just extreme.
