FAQ



Are a Heart Attack and Myocardial Infarction the Same Thing?

Yes, myocardial infarction is the same as a heart attack. It occurs when a part of the heart muscle dies because it did not receive enough blood. Usually this is caused by heart disease, but there are occasions when low blood pressure or a prolonged spasm causes the event. In many cases, heart disease is preventable, but congenital heart defects are not. Heart attacks can also be caused by hyperthyroidism. Instead of a section of the heart muscle dying, the heart needs more oxygen than usual.

The most common cause of heart disease is the buildup of fatty deposits in the walls of the coronary arteries. When these arteries are blocked, blood supply is unable to reach the heart properly. This build up can occur throughout the entire body and over time arteries grow narrower and narrower. There are usually no warning signs of arteries clogging, though most doctors can predict based on a person’s lifestyle the likelihood of heart disease. There is also recent research showing a link between build up of dental plaque and heart disease. By the time symptoms arise, which may occur prior to an actual heart attack, the arteries of the heart and throughout the body are usually quite blocked.

There are both mild to moderate and severe myocardial events. A mild event is usually brief and causes chest pain without creating any permanent damage. If left untreated, a prolonged event can lead to tissue death which then triggers a full-blown heart attack.

Usually, this begins with a rapidly forming blood clot in an already narrow artery. The clot further obstructs that artery or travels to an artery that is partially blocked and becomes lodged. Whatever area of the heart muscle the artery supplies is deprived of blood and the infarction occurs.

Heart attacks have locations and severity based on the area in which the artery is obstructed. If blood supply overlaps with other coronary vessels, it can also affect the severity of the event.

Diagnosing a Heart Attack

Heart attack diagnosis begins with a patient reporting sudden and intense chest pain. It may vary in intensity and specific location, but it typically feels like a crushing pain in the chest. Patients with a history of chest pain often find that rest or nitroglycerin tablets ease the pain, but this is not the case with a full-blown heart attack.

Patients experiencing a heart attack may also feel light-headed, anxious, and nauseated, and they may have difficulty breathing, sweat, vomit, or faint. Symptoms can also be faint during a heart attack, which is why it is sometimes mistaken for digestive distress, such as indigestion or gas.
