FAQ


What Happens During a Heart Attack?

People who have suffered a heart attack sometimes try to describe their symptoms, but many feel that unless you have experienced an event, you do not fully understand how a heart attack feels. Knowing what happens during a heart attack can help you save your own life or the life of someone else. By recognizing what is happening, you can reach out to emergency services, describe the symptoms, and get help as quickly as possible.

What is Going on During a Heart Attack?

Heart attacks occur when the supply of blood needed by the heart is blocked. When blood cannot reach the heart, the affected area of the heart dies. Blood travels to the heart via the arteries in the body. Over time, people can develop coronary artery disease, which narrows the arteries and blocks the blood supply. Artery disease is caused by the build up of fat, as well as proteins, calcium, and inflammatory cells. (This does not mean protein and calcium are bad for you!) All of these materials form a substance known as plaque, which creates hard deposits on the inside and outside of the arteries.

The hardened plaque triggers a rupture, which leads to blood platelets rushing to the affected area. This causes a clot to form. When the clot blocks the artery or travels to a narrowed area of another artery and blocks the passage of blood, oxygen-rich blood is unable to bypass the blockage and reach the heart. A heart attack occurs when this blockage kills the cells of the heart muscle, causing permanent damage. The formation of plaque and narrowing of the arteries can take years, but the blood clot and severe blockage can occur in a matter of minutes.

There are other causes of heart attacks, including a spasm of the coronary artery, but this is extremely rare. Most heart attacks are caused by plaque buildup and blood clots, both of which may be preventable for some patients.

Symptoms of a Heart Attack

Some people know they are having a heart attack as it occurs, while others mistake the pain for digestive issues or strained muscles. Usually mistaken self-diagnoses occur during mild heart attacks.

If you experience any of the following symptoms and especially a combination of these symptoms, contact your doctor or emergency services immediately:

Pain, discomfort, pressure, crushing, or heaviness in the chest or arm
Pain or discomfort that radiates from the chest to the back, throat, jaw, or arm
Rapid and/or irregular heart beat
Sweating, nausea, dizziness, or vomiting
Full, choking, or indigestion-like feeling
Extreme weakness, anxiety, or shortness or breath
