Heart Attack

Heart attack is one of the fast growing diseases which are in hunt of human health and become a cause of many deaths every year. In old days it was considered that elderly people become a frequent victim of the disease and it was related with one of the old age drawbacks which were could not make a captive of the local treatments. But now the fact has gone wrong and you will find heart attack making very young people a patient of the ailment. One of the targets of the medical science is to lessen the ratio of the disease.

This article of mine may help you to have a look at the symptoms and the precautions which may help you to have a control over the disease. First let’s talk about when heart attack occurs. Heart attack occurs when the flow of blood is stopped to a part or the muscle of the time for such a long time that the part of the heart dies or is damaged. Many factors can become the reason bringing this condition. This brings a condition which is known as heart attack. Medical science calls this condition myocardial infarction.

Coming towards the reason how the blood flow is blocked; let me tell you that your heart feeds on the oxygen and the food absorbed in the blood brought by coronary arteries. These arteries bring oxygenated blood to heart and its muscles. If a blood clot is made in these arteries, the path of blood is hurdled by this block and as a result the supply of the blood to heart is disconnected causing heart attack. This clot may be formed and kept on growing for long time and a certain time brings this condition to you. When the path is disconnected, the heart starves of the oxygen and food.

The other reason of the blocking of the blood flow way can be plaque. Plaque built up can be the reason of the accumulation of the cholesterol. This buildup damages the walls of arteries and the blood flow is unable to access heart and its muscles. This is the most common reason of heart attack. Plaque creates cracks or the tears; your blood platelets stick to these cracks and make a blood clot. This blood clot blocks the way of rich oxygen blood to the heart. Sometimes you may have this blood clot blocking the way partially allowing a part of the blood accessing your heart. When this blockage does not allow any blood flow; blood is unable to reach its destination and heat attack is caused. This can happen when your body is under long stress and suffering from serious illness.

The above mentioned are the mostly diagnosed reasons of the heart attack. This is not always possible to find out the reason. It may happen when you are asleep or your are very active outside in the cold weather. A serious emotional or physical shock may also cause heart attack. When you have a sudden increase in your physical activity; you will also find yourself under the increased chances of heart attack.

When you receive an emotional shock; your heart may become numb and is unable to work and supply the blood to other organs of the body. This condition is known as medical emergency.

As a general awareness; you must be aware of the common symptoms of heart attack to help yourself as early as possible. The first common symptom is chest pain. If you have sudden chest pain which is unbearable, immediately get medical consultation before you are helpless to do anything. Often this pain extends from chest to other parts like arms, jaws, back and teeth. The common feelings which come across while having this type of chest pain are that you feel a strong band tightening all around your chest. You feel something very heavy is sitting on your chest or a heavy pressure is squeezing your chest. The pain lasts for twenty minutes and the rest and the medicine taken for the chest pain may not be sufficient in bringing complete relief and you will find these symptoms coming and going away.

Other common symptoms include anxiety, cough, and nausea, dizziness, panting and heavy sweating. Unusual cases of heart attack are with the people of elderly age suffering with diabetes. These often become a victim of silent heart attack. These people may have very little or no chest pain. This silent heart attack is with very little or no symptoms.

In case you are afraid that you are going to be caught by heart attack, immediately head towards nearby medical care center. Do not drive by yourself and never inhale smoking tobacco.

After you get in a hospital, your doctor or nurse will examine physical test. They will hear your chest sound with stethoscope.

First thing to avoid is the chain smoking. This is the worst thing that you buy for yourself. You must avoid smoking for having reduced chances of heart attack. Regular exercise helps you to have a steady flow of blood throughout the body. You must take in low fats and low cholesterol in order to avoid any plaque buildup in your arteries. These simple tips can help you to save yourself from getting a victim of heart attack.
