Heart Attack

Cases of heart attack have become very common nowadays with many people dying abruptly even without knowing that they are suffering from heart-related problems. The latest high-ranking person said to have died of cardiac arrest is Professor George Magoha.

Initially, things to do with a heart attack were associated with lifestyle issues with many considering it as the illness of the rich. Not anymore, everyone is at risk of getting a heart attack. The health problem is no longer a problem of the rich as many think.

According to cardiologists, a heart attack occurs when one or more coronary arteries become blocked or narrow as a result of the build-up of various substances such as cholesterol. This, sometimes, makes it hard for blood to reach the heart and other parts.

A heart attack can also occur through spasms. This is the process where a coronary artery shuts down blood flow to the part of the heart muscle causing that part to die. It may also occur due to a tear of the heart artery. Most heart attacks lead 100 percent to death.

Medics say Coronary artery disease (CAD) is the main cause of heart attacks. A less common cause is a severe spasm, or sudden contraction, of a coronary artery that can stop blood flow to the heart muscle.

Here are some of the early signs that you might be dying or having a heart attack soon:

  • Sudden dizziness
  • Abnormal fatigue
  • Cold sweat
  • Shortness of breath
  • Nausea, indigestion, heartburn, and abdominal pain.
  • Chest discomforts such as the feeling of pressure, squeezing, and pain.

The best way to find out if your heart is healthy is to visit a doctor from time to time.
