What to Know About Heart Attacks
A heart attack is the sudden interruption of blood flow within the heart. The blockage can happen when a piece of plaque breaks loose from the wall of a blood vessel and becomes lodged in one of the heart's arteries. Called acute myocardial infarction (AMI), a heart attack can also occur when arteries become inflamed or close off because of plaque buildup.
Oxygen-rich blood no longer flows past the blockage, choking off the tissue beyond the blockage. Without rapid treatment, a heart attack can lead to permanent heart damage and even death.
