In some patients, the blood supply to a part of the Heart muscle stops suddenly. This happens most often due to the formation of a clot inside one of the three coronary arteries supplying blood to the heart muscle, When this happens, the heart muscle that receives blood from the respective coronary artery gets damaged. This is termed a heart attack
Various risk factors increase the chances of a person having a heart attack. Smoking, High Blood pressure, Diabetes, physical inactivity, high cholesterol levels, obesity, and poor diet are important risk factors. These can be potentially controlled to reduce heart attack risk. Therefore, these are termed Modifiable Risk factors.
Older age, male sex, family history, and Post-menopausal state in women are factors that can increase heart attack risk but cannot be altered. These are called non-modifiable risk factors.
Normal blood pressure is defined as blood pressure of 90-140 mmHg systolic, and 60-90 mmHg diastolic. A blood pressure of 140/90 or higher is termed as hypertension.
Anything in excess or deficiency is a problem. The same applies to blood sugar. High blood sugar levels can increase the risk of heart diseases like heart attack and heart failure. Low blood sugar (Hypoglycaemia) can precipitate arrhythmias and heart attacks. Long-term uncontrolled blood sugar can lead to blocks in the peripheral arteries like in the brain, legs, and abdomen.
A lot of people use these terms interchangeably, Heart attack refers to damage to the heart muscle. Stroke refers to paralysis of limbs or face or any other neurological function due to damage to the brain resulting from clotting or bleeding in the blood vessels of the brain. They are clinically different and the terms should ideally not be interchanged.
Of course not. Symptoms of heart attack can vary from case to case. The commonest symptom of a heart attack is chest pain. This is seen in about 70% of all heart attack patients. The remainder can present with breathlessness, arm or back pain, cold sweats, loss of consciousness, or palpitations. Some patients may have no symptoms at all and are said to have a Silent Heart attack.
- Take Medicines on time.
- Regular consultation and tests.
- Eat a healthy fiber-rich diet. Reduce your refined carbohydrates and deep – fried foods.
- Cardiologists will help you get back to a regular fitness regimen once you recover.
If your pain is severe, frequent, or unbearable, visit the cardiologist to rule out a cardiac event.
Based on the variation in the ECG during a heart attack, doctors recognize two types of heart attacks.
- ST-elevation Myocardial Infarction (STEMI).
- Non-ST-elevation Myocardial infarction (NSTEMI).
STEMI and NSTEMI differ not only in the variation in the ECG but also in their severity. In general, STEMI is more likely to be immediately fatal or disabling than NSTEMI. Consequently, STEMI requires more urgent treatment than NSTEMI in most instances.
Coronary angioplasty is a procedure performed to widen narrow or blocked sections of the coronary vessels thereby restoring the blood flow. A thin balloon is inserted into the coronary artery and inflated at the site of the block to widen the narrowed artery. This makes way for the opening of the blockages. A stent is generally then placed to prevent future blockages.
Heart failure is a condition in which your heart is not pumping normally and is unable to deliver oxygen-rich blood throughout the body. It does not mean the heart has stopped working. It means that it is working at lower efficiency.
The heart muscle is either too weak and cannot pump blood to the rest of the body with enough force (systolic failure) and/or has trouble relaxing and becomes stiff (diastolic failure). This causes a build-up of fluid (congestion) in the lungs, feet, and other body tissues. This generally develops slowly but can also present very rapidly.
Yes. Being overweight and obese can cause a high risk of multiple heart problems. It can lead to high blood pressure. Excess weight also increases the chance of atherosclerosis (cholesterol deposits in the arteries causing blocks), abnormal heart rhythms, and heart attacks, and significantly increases the risk of heart failure.
Family history plays an important role in the causation of heart attacks. The risk of a heart attack in a person more than doubles if a first-degree relative (parents, siblings, or children) has had a heart attack in the past.
While there are exceptions, heart attacks are generally seen in older adults. The typical age for a man to have a heart attack is 55 years and above and for a woman it is 65 years and above,When heart attacks are seen in men younger than 55 years and women younger than 65 years it is termed as Premature Heart Attack or Premature Coronary artery disease.This has increased.In India, during the last two decades,Studies have shown that between 15-22% of all heart attacks are seen in adults younger than 40 years of age.
Heart Attack sometimes presents as a burning sensation in the chest. If you experience this and it is severe and not relieved with usual Gastritis medicines, Please consult a cardiologist.
- Heart Attack happens when the blood supply to the heart muscle is reduced by a clot/ plaque. It leads to weakening of the heart muscle.
- Cardiac Arrest is the stoppage of the heart. Here, the heart stops beating. It can happen due to a heart attack or high potassium levels, severe infections, severe temperature fluctuations etc.
