Heart Attach
A heart attack usually occurs when a blood clot blocks the flow of blood through a coronary artery — a blood vessel that feeds bloodto a part of the heart muscle. Interrupted blood flow to your heartcan damage or destroy a part of the heart muscle. Years ago, aheart attack was often fatal. Thanks to better awareness of heartattack signs and symptoms and improved treatments, most peoplewho have a heart attack now survive. Your overall lifestyle — what you eat, how often you exercise andthe way you deal with stress — plays a role in your recovery from aheart attack. In addition, a healthy lifestyle can help you prevent afirst or subsequent heart attack by controlling risk factors thatcontribute to the narrowing of the coronary arteries that supplyblood to your heart.
