Heart Health in PasadenaJune 1, 2019
Myocardinal Infarctions or “Heart Attacks” as they are more commonly known are brought on by impaired blood flow to the heart brought on by a blood clot when plaque build-up in wall of a coronary artery ruptures. There are a number of factors that can play into a heart attack such as smoking, high blood pressure, Diabetes, obesity and cholesterol.
A Stroke or heart attack is a life altering occurrence and must be dealt with seriously. Those who experience a heart attack are especially at risk as the heart is permanently weaker due scarring of the heart muscle. It is important to learn to recognize the symptoms of heart disease especially if there is a history of the condition in the family. The most common symptom of the condition is chest pain or angina. Often mistaken for heartburn, angina can be described as a pressure or heaviness in the chest. It may also be felt in the arms, neck, back and jaw. Other symptoms include:
- Irregular heart beats
- Shortness of breath
While an actual heart attack on the other hand may include all of the above to a stronger degree in addition to weakness and anxiety-IT IS VERY IMPORTANT TO SEEK EMERGECNY MEDICAL ATTENTION IF YOU THINK YOU ARE HAVING A HEART ATTACK. Immediate action can lessen the damage to the heart muscle.
