A heart attack, also known as a myocardial infarction, occurs when the blood flow to the heart is reduced or blocked. This blockage prevents oxygen-rich blood from reaching areas of the heart, causing the heart muscle to be damaged or even die. Blockages can be caused by the buildup of fat, cholesterol, and other substances in the coronary arteries of the heart. These fatty deposits consist of cholesterol called plaques. The process of the plaque development is called atherosclerosis. In some instances, blood flow can be blocked by ruptured plaque which forms clots.
When the blood supply to the heart is stopped or blocked, the muscles of the heart get damaged and eventually die without a supply of blood. Without timely treatment, heart muscles can experience irreversible damage. Moreover, this type of irreversible damage may affect a major portion of the heart to stop functioning and halt beating altogether. This is known as cardiac arrest, and it results in death.
