  • 1. HEART ATTACK – MYOCARDIAL INFARCTION ( Key words: IHD–Ischemic Heart Disease, CAD-Coronary Artery Disease )
      HEART ATTACK (Myocardial infarction) in simple terms is Death of a part of heart muscle due to Complete lack of blood supply (Nutrition & Oxygen) to that part of the heart.
      The Heart muscle gets its blood supply from small blood vessels that come out of the Aorta, called as Coronary arteries .

  • 2. HEART ATTACK – MYOCARDIAL INFARCTION ( Key words: IHD–Ischemic Heart Disease, CAD-Coronary Artery Disease )
      There are 3 main coronary arteries Right, Left anterior descending and Left circumflex artery , which branch further, form a network and supply different parts of the heart.
      If there is blockage of these vessels due to either Clot, Cholesterol deposits or Spasm / constriction, leads to reduced or complete lack of blood supply , subsequently Chest pain and Heart attack.

  • 3. HEART ATTACK – MYOCARDIAL INFARCTION ( Key words: IHD–Ischemic Heart Disease, CAD-Coronary Artery Disease )
      Depending on the Site and Degree of blockage , the area of Heart supplied by that vessel suffers damage.
      As we put Effort in doing any work or exercise, our Heart beats more to supply Oxygen and Nutrients to body. Mean while the Oxygen demand of heart also increases.
    www.pinkwhalehealthcare.com If the Oxygen demand is not met, it can lead to Chest pain.
  • 4. HEART ATTACK – MYOCARDIAL INFARCTION ( Key words: IHD–Ischemic Heart Disease, CAD-Coronary Artery Disease )
      Chest Pain related to heart (Angina Pectoris) , develops mostly during exertion , but sometimes can appear at rest – like during Coronary artery spasm or in Heart attack.
      ANGINA is
      -> Tightness, discomfort, or burning sensation at the center of the chest, along with sweating.
      -> Radiates to shoulder and hand, usually on left side. -> Increases on exertion, reduces on resting after 15 min.

  • 6. HEART ATTACK – MYOCARDIAL INFARCTION ( Key words: IHD–Ischemic Heart Disease, CAD-Coronary Artery Disease )
      If the blood supply is not restored on time, the heart tissue can be permanently damaged resulting in reduced efficiency of pumping -> Heart Failure leading to weakness, breathlessness and reduced ability to work.
      Angina & Heart attack can be recognized by ECG, Echocardiography (Echo scan), Elevated Cardiac enzymes (Troponin T & CKMB) and Clinical symptoms.

  • 8. HEART ATTACK – MYOCARDIAL INFARCTION ( Key words: IHD–Ischemic Heart Disease, CAD-Coronary Artery Disease )
      Indians Aged 30–39 have 10 times more risk of having Heart attack than Westerners.
      There are about 4 crore Diabetics in India, & there will be 6.4 crore with Heart disease by 2015 .
