What is myocardial infarction?

Myocardial infarction is a medical term for a heart attack. This severe condition affects the function and long-term health of your heart.

A myocardial infarction happens when an obstruction blocks blood flow to your heart. The lack of blood damages the heart tissues. A heart attack can lead to severe medical complications and premature death if not treated promptly.

A leading cause of obstructions is atherosclerosis, a build-up of cholesterol in the arteries that prevents blood from reaching the heart. You can also be at increased risk of myocardial infarction because of:

  • Diabetes
  • Unhealthy diet
  • Hereditary factors
  • Lack of physical activity
  • Excessive alcohol use
  • High blood pressure (hypertension)

Advanced Medical Care offers diagnostic screenings that identify the risk factors for myocardial infarction before you experience a heart event. They also provide a range of treatments to restore your heart health after a heart attack.

What are the symptoms of myocardial infarction?

A myocardial infarction happens suddenly with no advanced warning. During a heart attack, you can experience:

  • Chest pain
  • Chest tightness
  • Heart palpitations
  • Shortness of breath
  • Lightheadedness or dizziness
  • Pain in the jaw, back, neck, or shoulders

If these symptoms come on suddenly, you need to seek immediate medical care at the nearest emergency room or call 911.

If you have risk factors for myocardial infarction, schedule a diagnostic evaluation at Advanced Medical Care, even if you’re not experiencing symptoms. The team will screen for potential problems like high blood pressure (hypertension) and atherosclerosis that can lead to a sudden heart attack.
