Heart attack or Myocardial infarction occurs when the flow of oxygen-rich blood to the heart muscle suddenly becomes blocked and the heart doesn’t get oxygen. If the blood flow is not restored quickly, the heart muscle begins to die and becomes damaged. Restricted blood flow typically results in death of part of the heart muscle. One of the most common causes of heart attack is arterial plaque. Over time, as a result of unhealthy lifestyle, the plaque builds up on the arterial walls and as a result of that blood clot can be created which blocks and prevents a proper blood flow.
According to statistical data, the primary cause of death in the U.S. is heart attack. Moreover, recent scientific study showed that the coronary artery disease and the cardiovascular diseases are the cause for million deaths annually. And these medical conditions actually lead to heart attack.
Health experts estimated that about 920,000 Americans will experience a heart attack this year.
