Heart Attack

A heart attack or acute myocardial infarction (MI) occurs when one of the arteries that supplies the heart muscle becomes blocked. This blockage deprives the heart of oxygen, causing damage to your heart muscle. Recognizing and treating a heart attack right away improves your chance for survival.
