A heart attack, also called a myocardial infarction, is a serious medical emergency, often life-threatening if not treated in time.
Build-up of fat, cholesterol and other substances often form a plaque in the coronary arteries. When the flow of blood to the heart is blocked by this plaque, the interrupted flow can destroy or damage the heart causing a heart attack. A heart attack is not the same as a sudden cardiac arrest which is when the heart suddenly stops. Sudden cardiac arrest occurs when an electrical disturbance disrupts the pumping action of the heart and blood flow to the rest of the body stops.
Heart attack symptoms and the severity of these symptoms differ from person to person. They range from mild to severe pain while some people may not have any symptoms at all and the first sign may be a sudden cardiac attack. Here are some common symptoms:
• Angina or recurrent chest pain. This kind of pain starts due to exertion and is relieved by rest
• Tightness, pressure, pain, or a squeezing sensation in arms or chest possibly moving along to the jaw, neck, or back
• Nausea, indigestion, heartburn or stomach aches
• Breathlessness, fatigue, cold sweat, or sudden dizziness
