Heart Attacks And Treatments:
Other Names For Heart Attack:
- Coronary Attack

A heart attack occurs when the blood flow to a part of the heart is suddenly and permanently cut off, causing damage to the heart muscle. Chest pain is typically severe and does not go away with rest or medicine that is effective with angina. Symptoms may indicate your heart is in danger many months or years before a heart attack occurs. Persistent symptoms, such as shortness of breath, nausea, great fatigue, angina/chest pain, fainting spells and gas-like discomfort, are red flags.
