How common are heart attacks?

About 805,000 people have a heart attack every year in the United States alone. Many different factors can increase the risk of heart attacks, including:

  • Hereditary factors
  • Physical inactivity
  • High blood pressure
  • High blood cholesterol
  • Diabetes
  • Excessive alcohol use
  • Unhealthy diet

Since many traits can contribute to heart attacks, you need the right care to evaluate your condition and help protect your quality of life. Our team brings extensive knowledge to help support you as you navigate your health needs.

Signs of heart attack.

Being aware of the symptoms of myocardial infarction could save you or a loved one’s life. Key signs include:

  • Shortness of breath
  • Chest pain or discomfort
  • Sensations of faintness or lightheadedness
  • Pain or discomfort in the back, jaw or neck
  • Pain or discomfort in either or both shoulders

If you have a pacemaker, you could still experience a heart attack if you have coronary artery disease. Signs of heart attack with a pacemaker include frequent palpitations, a slower than usual heartbeat, trouble breathing and chest pains.

Whether or not you have a pacemaker, if you experience these symptoms, you should contact emergency services right away to get the proper medical treatment.
