Myocardial infarction

Myocardial infarction, commonly known as a heart attack, is a very common cause of numerous deaths in the USA. Blood, travelling through the heart to different body organs of the body, transports numerous things, including oxygen, nutrients, water, etc. All these vitals are brought simultaneously to the four-chambered organ by a set of various coronary arteries surrounding it. When the supply of these vitals declines at an alarming rate or gets completely blocked due to the presence of fat in the heart, an individual experience "cardiac ischemia." This ischemia lasts to damage several organs; it is called Myocardial infarction or heart attack. The major symptom of Myocardial infarction is chest pain at the centre or left side of the chest, which further has chances of travelling to your arm, jaw, neck, or shoulder. Its other symptoms are dizziness, nausea, or shortness of breath. A mild heart attack gives a burning sensation. It is also seen that women generally feel none of these symptoms during a heart attack.
