Albeit the fact that anxiety/panic attack has similar symptoms as heart attack, they are obviously different. Heart attack is a physical condition of the heart while anxiety attack is caused by the mind. Knowing the difference might help you or your friends/family when situations arise. Generally speaking, an anxiety attack is not going to kill you while a heart attack can be fatal. It can save you unnecessary expenses too because the cost of an ambulance ride can be costly (over $1000 on average) which will be expensive for a false alarm.
