Heart Attack (myocardial Infarction)

Heart attack (myocardial infarction) most commonly results from the sudden occlusion of a coronary artery. As a result, blood flow to the myocardium is interrupted and oxygen is no longer delivered. The cardinal symptom is intense, crushing pain in the middle of the chest or just below the rib cage and may radiate towards the left arm, the neck or jaw. The treatment goal is to restore the blood flow to the myocardium.
