A Small Note on Attack of Myocardial Infraction.
A myocardial infarction (MI), also known as a heart attack, occurs when blood supply to a region of the heart is restricted or stopped, resulting in damage to the heart muscle. Chest pain or discomfort is the most common symptom, which might spread to the shoulder, arm, back, neck, or jaw. It usually happens in the middle or left side of the chest and lasts for several minutes. It's probable that the discomfort will feel like heartburn at times. Shortness of breath, nausea, dizziness, faintness, a cold sweat, or tiredness are some of the other symptoms. Atypical symptoms can affect about 30% of people. Women are more likely to present with neck pain, arm pain, or exhaustion rather than chest pain. About 5% of those over the age of 75 have developed a MI with little or no prior symptoms.
