Although heart disease is one of the primary causes of death, it is preventable. While some risk factors, like age, sex, and family history, cannot be changed, there are several strategies to lower your risk of heart disease.

Heart Attack in Men and Women

Another name for heart attacks is myocardial infarctions (MIs). The terms “myo”, “cardial” and “infarction” all relate to the death of tissue brought on by a lack of blood flow. Your heart muscle may suffer long-term damage as a result of this tissue loss.

Both men and women suffer from heart attacks. Although they become more common as you get older, there are numerous risk factors you can control, such as high blood pressure, high levels of LDL (bad) cholesterol, diabetes, and whether you smoke. Women may experience unusual symptoms such as brief or intense discomfort in the neck, arm, or back.

Heart Attack Causes 

Sudden cardiac arrest is sometimes the initial indication of a heart attack. Some heart attacks occur unexpectedly. Nonetheless, many people experience warning signs and symptoms hours, days, or weeks before the event. Angina (chest pain or pressure) that persists and does not go away with rest may be an early warning indication. Angina is produced by a brief reduction in blood flow to the heart.

Dr. Naveen Bhamri, a cardiologist at Max Super Speciality Hospital in Shalimar Bagh, provides further information about heart illness, as well as advice and guidelines for maintaining heart health.
