Facts About Heart Attack
Heart attacks also known as myocardial infarctions. Did you know this? The answer is likely ‘No’ for many of you. A heart attack happens when blood flow to the heart is disrupted, and a part of the heart muscle doesn’t get enough oxygen.
Chest pain or discomfort, shortness of breath, light-headedness, pain in arms or shoulders are major symptoms of a heart attack. If you experience these symptoms or notice them in someone else, seek medical help immediately. Early treatment to restore blood flow can reduce the amount of damage to the heart muscle and increase the chances of surviving a heart attack.
