What Occurs During A Heart Attack

Have you ever wonder what exactly occurs during a heart attack and what are the side effects of a heart attack? In this article we will find out more.

As we know the heart muscle requires a constant supply of oxygenated blood to nourish it. The coronary arteries provide the heart with this critical oxygenated blood supply. If you have coronary artery disease, those arteries become extremely narrow and blood cannot flow smoothly.

Cholesterol, calcium, proteins, and inflammatory cells build up within the arteries to form plaques of different sizes and when these plaque are harden, outer shell cracks (plaque rupture), platelets (disc-shaped particles in the blood that aid clotting) come to the area, and then blood clots form around the plaque.

If the blood clot entirely blocks the artery, then the heart muscle becomes “deprived” of oxygen. Then death of heart muscle cells occurs, causing permanent irreversible damage. This is a heart attack.

Each coronary artery supplies blood to a region of heart muscle. The amount of damage to the heart muscle depends very much on the size of the area supplied by the blocked artery and the time between injury and treatment. The heart’s wound heals and normally a scar will form in the damaged area.

However, the new scar tissue does not contract or pump as well as healthy heart muscle tissue. So, the heart’s pumping ability will not be as effective and strong as before the heart attack. Those are the side effects of a heart attack.

But there is a heart surgeon that claims that he knows how to prevent and cure heart diseases. To find out more about his methods please go to his heart website.
