Heart Attack

Resource Properties

Abstract:

This eight-page handout educates people about heart attack, or myocardial infarction (MI), which occurs when a blood vessel that provides the heart muscle with oxygen becomes blocked, stopping blood flow to a part of the heart. It explains that most heart attacks happen when the supply of blood and oxygen to the heart is blocked by a blood clot, fatty deposits called plaque, or a spasm in the blood vessel. It describes signs of a heart attack, and clarifies what to do if a person experiences any of these symptoms, including calling 911 immediately. The document outlines what care a person will receive at a hospital after a heart attack, and provides detailed discharge instructions for home care after a heart attack. A list of things people can do to improve their heart health is included.
