An Explosive Situation
A heart attack is sudden. The causes of the heart attack are not. Years of unhealthy heart habits suddenly, unexpectedly, catch up with you. Anywhere. Anytime. A diseased heart is like a ticking timebomb. The heart attack is its explosion. Technically, a heart attack occurs when the supply of nutrient-rich blood to the heart muscle is reduced or stopped. If the blood supply is shut down for a long time, muscle cells die from a lack of oxygen. If enough cells die, the victim will also die. Often, only a small part of the heart muscle is deprived of oxygen so the victim can recover. Why does the blood supply reduce or stop? There are many possibilities. One of the most common is arteriosclerosis , an arterial disease. If blood is unable to flow through the blood vessels, it cannot nourish the body and heart. Is there a way to predict a heart attack? Angina pectoris, or chest pain, is a warning sign of a possible heart attack. Any chest pain should be taken seriously and investigated. Heart attacks are frightening for both the victim and for the victim's companions.

How to ward off heart attacks?
Scientists say they have found a way for coronary patients to minimise the risk of a second heart attack - drink wine every day. Previous research has shown that drinking wine in sensible amounts may reduce the risk of coronary heart disease. But the new research suggests that it might also be an effective way to reduce the risk for people who have already had one heart attack. French researchers found that middle-aged men who had had one heart attack and who drank two or more glasses of wine regularly were 50% less likely than non-drinkers to have a second attack. Dr Michel de Lorgeril, of the Joseph Fourier University of Grenoble, France, and colleagues studied 353 men aged 40 to 60 who had just had heart attacks. There were no significant differences in how severe their heart attacks had been, what drugs they used to treat heart disease or what they ate. The main differences lay in whether the men drank wine.

Contents of this page: Alternative names Myocardial infarction; MI; Acute MI Definition Return to top A heart attack (myocardial infarction) occurs when an area of heart muscle dies or is permanently damaged because of an inadequate supply of oxygen to that area. Causes, incidence, and risk factors Return to top Most heart attacks are caused by a clot that blocks one of the coronary arteries (the blood vessels that bring blood and oxygen to the heart muscle). The clot usually forms in a coronary artery that has been previously narrowed from changes related to atherosclerosis The atherosclerotic plaque (buildup) inside the arterial wall sometimes cracks, and this triggers the formation of a thrombus, or clot. A clot in the coronary artery interrupts the flow of blood and oxygen to the heart muscle, leading to the death of heart cells in that area. The damaged heart muscle permanently loses its ability to contract, and the remaining heart muscle needs to compensate for it. Rarely, sudden overwhelming

The heart is a complex, highly specialized muscle that contracts approximately 70 times each minute to pump blood to the head, arms, chest, abdomen, and legs. This pumping action requires oxygen, which is carried in the blood by specialized red blood cells. Three blood vessels, called the coronary arteries , supply the heart with blood and oxygen. Over time, plaques made of cholesterol and other substances can develop in these arteries and partially block the flow of blood. Occasionally, the surface of one of these plaques can burst or rupture. When this happens, a blood clot may form on top of the plaque, further blocking blood flow in the artery. If a blood clot becomes large enough, it can completely block the flow of blood through the coronary artery. This makes the heart muscle

Facts About Angina
What is angina? ANGINA PECTORIS ("ANGINA") IS A recurring pain or discomfort in the chest that happens when some part of the heart does not receive enough blood. It is a common symptom of coronary heart disease (CHD), which occurs when vessels that carry blood to the heart become narrowed and blocked due to atherosclerosis Angina feels like a pressing or squeezing pain, usually in the chest under the breast bone, but sometimes in the shoulders, arms, neck, jaws, or back. Angina is usually precipitated by exertion. It is usually relieved within a few minutes by resting or by taking prescribed angina medicine. What brings on angina? Episodes of angina occur when the heart's need for oxygen increases beyond the oxygen available from the blood nourishing the heart. Physical exertion is the most common trigger for angina. Other triggers can be emotional stress, extreme cold or heat, heavy meals, alcohol, and cigarette smoking. Does angina mean a heart attack is about to happen?

What is a heart attack?
A heart attack occurs when the arteries that supply blood to the heart muscle, become blocked. Blood carries oxygen to the heart muscle. When the blood flow is stopped or slowed down, the muscle does not receive the oxygen it needs, and pain, called angina, occurs. If the flow of blood and oxygen are stopped long enough, some of the heart muscle will die. This is a heart attack. Damage to the heart may be slight, with little impact in the ability of the heart to function. A "massive" heart attack significantly reduces the ability of the heart muscle to pump. It may also effect the functioning of the valves in the heart. Typical symptoms include chest tightness, burning or pressure. Often this discomfort is also felt in the left shoulder, left arm and hand, and sometimes in the neck and/or jaw. Other symptoms include nausea, vomiting, sweating, dizziness, and skin that is cold to the touch. Somtimes symptoms are not typical, and include shortness of breath and fatigue.
