FAQ


What is the Difference Between Heart Attack and Stroke?

There are some people who assume heart attacks and strokes are the same thing. Though there is some relation, they are two different medical emergencies with two different sets of symptoms. Both require immediate medical attention, but recognizing which is which can help you receive the proper treatment. If you are able to describe your symptoms clearly without assuming you are experiencing one or the other, it can save your life.

What is the Difference?

A heart attack occurs when damage is done to the heart muscle. This typically occurs because the flow of oxygen-rich blood is blocked on its way to the heart. Usually a blood clot forms and becomes lodged in a narrowed artery. When oxygen does not reach the heart, the heart begins to die.

Stroke occurs when a similar process happens, but the damaged area is the brain. Oxygen-rich blood is prevented from reaching the brain because a clot lodges in a narrowed artery. The section of the brain affected begins to die. In most cases, stroke only affects one side of the body because it is only affecting a portion of the brain.

Since the process is similar for both events, but one affects the brain and the other the heart, some have suggested stroke be renamed “brain attack.” This would help people differentiate between the two easily because it clearly states one affects the heart and one affects the brain.

Symptoms of a heart attack include:

Pain or discomfort in the chest that radiates to the arm, neck, back, or jaw
Nausea, dizziness, anxiety, pressure, or a feeling of fullness that last 30 minutes or more

Symptoms of a stroke include:

The symptoms of a stroke have been organized into an acronym to help you easily identify them and make the right decision about treatment. Recognize a stroke by identifying FAST symptoms:

(F)ace drooping: If one side of the person’s face droops or becomes number, it is a sign of a stroke occurring. Asking someone to smile can help you determine if he or she has lost control of one side of the face.

(A)rm weakness: If one arm is weaker than the other it is a sign of a stroke. Ask the affected person to raise both arms. Note whether or not both move in the same manner or if one drifts downward from its raised position.

(S)peaking difficulty: When a person is slurring his or her speech for no reason, it is a sign of a stroke. When a person cannot be understood and he or she is unable to repeat simple sentences, you need to seek medical assistance immediately.

(T)ime to dial 911: If any of the above symptoms are present and especially if more than one symptom occurs, contact 911 immediately.
