What is a Heart Attack?
A heart attack occurs when the blood flow that brings oxygen to the heart muscle is severely reduced or cut off. This happens because coronary arteries that supply blood flow can become narrowed from a buildup of fat, cholesterol and substances that are called plaque. When plaque breaks down, a blood clot forms around it. This can block the blood flow to the heart muscle which can starve the heart muscle for oxygen. When damage to the heart muscle occurs as a result, it’s called a heart attack.
