What is Heart attack?

A heart attack is a medical emergency. It occurs when the blood supply to the heart is significantly reduced or blocked, without blood, tissue loses oxygen and dies. The blockage is usually due to a buildup of fat, cholesterol and other substances in the heart (coronary) arteries.

A heart attack is also called a myocardial infarction. Immediate treatment is needed for a heart attack to prevent death.


Symptoms of a heart attack may vary from person to person. Some people have mild symptoms, some have severe symptoms, and some people have no symptoms.

  • Lightheadedness or sudden dizziness
  • Nausea
  • Shortness of breath

Women may experience unusual symptoms such as brief or sharp pain felt in the neck, arm or back. Some heart attacks strike suddenly. Sometimes, the first sign of a heart attack is sudden cardiac arrest.

Age, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, diabetes, obesity, a sedentary lifestyle, and stress are the risk factors that have increased the risk of heart attacks.
