HEART & BLOOD

Heart Attack & Failure

A heart attack is an injury to the heart muscle caused by a loss of blood supply. It usually occurs when a blood clot blocks the flow of blood through a coronary artery - a blood vessel that feeds blood to a part of the heart muscle. Interrupted blood flow to your heart can damage or destroy a part of the heart muscle. It can also be fatal.

Your overall lifestyle - what you eat, how often you exercise and the way you deal with stress - plays a role in how well you recover from a heart attack. In addition, a healthy lifestyle can help you prevent a first or subsequent heart attack by controlling risk factors that contribute to the narrowing of arteries that supply blood to your heart.

It usually occurs above the age of 40 years and the incidence increases with increasing age. It is more common in males till the age of 60 years. After 60 years of age equal incidence is observed in both sexes.
