What is Heart Attack?

when blood flow to a section of heart muscle becomes blocked, there isn't enough oxygen to supply the heart muscle to do work, the section of heart muscle becomes damaged from lack of oxygen and begins to die. Heart attack occurs.

The warning signs of a heart attack
The American Heart Association say the body likely will send one or more of these warning signals of a heart attack:.

  • Chest discomfort. Most heart attacks involve discomfort in the center of the chest that lasts for more than a few minutes or that goes away and comes back. The discomfort can feel like uncomfortable pressure, squeezing, or fullness.
  • Discomfort in other areas of the upper body. Symptoms can include discomfort in one or both arms or in the back, neck, jaw, or stomach.
  • Shortness of breath. This symptom often accompanies chest discomfort. However, it can also occur before the chest discomfort.
