Heart Attack


Heart attack is a medical emergency. Whenever someone has a heart attack, he should be treated immediately. If this is not done, then the chances of the patient's heart getting worse or his death increases. If you call an ambulance, your heart attack treatment starts in the vehicle itself. If someone else takes you to the hospital, doctors treat a heart attack in the emergency room.

In the initial treatment of heart attack, the blood clot accumulated in the heart should not increase and the pressure on the heart should be reduced. Medicines are used to eliminate blood clots or prevent their production. Apart from this, platelets are not able to collect and do not stick to the plaque, the plaque remains stable, and more ischemia does not increase, so medicines are also given. You should be given these medicines within 1 to 2 hours after a heart attack so that the least damage to your heart can be done.

Symptoms of Acute Heart Attack:

Some of the certain signs that indicate a person is having an acute heart attack are:

  • Chest pain often described as heaviness, tightness or pressure

  • Pain or discomfort in the upper body including jaw, arm, back

  • Shortness of breath

  • Sweating or cold sweat

  • Nausea, indigestion, or heartburn

  • Light-headedness and dizziness

  • Extreme weakness

  • Irregular heartbeats

  • Fatigue

What is the meaning of Mild Heart Attack and Major Heart Attack?

When heart pumping is above 45% it is known as mild heart attack and when it is less than 45% it is known as major heart attack. Heart attack causes an increase in heart rate. Whether heart attack is major or mild, every heart attack is critical.

Will our lifestyle be normal after Angioplasty?

It takes 6 to 7 weeks for the internal wound due to heart attack to heal. To prevent the risk of another heart attack, you should regularly take medications, visit a doctor, and, if possible, engage in cardiac rehabilitation.

To prevent the risk of heart attack, control Diabetes, Blood Pressure, LDL level in Colostrum and Stop Smoking.

Heart attack treatment may also include a procedure to open blocked arteries.

The primary symptom of a heart attack is chest pain, which is called angina pain. It starts to feel like pressure, heaviness or tightness. Which is not only on the left side but also in the middle or on the right side. This pain goes to the top of the stomach, sometimes it goes to the left hand or shoulder, sometimes there can be pain in the jaw or teeth.

Cardiac Catheterization

Cardiac catheterization may be used to perform procedures such as angiography or STAT. With its help, narrowed or closed arteries are opened.

Balloon Angioplasty

This approach can be adopted during cardiac catheterization, if needed. A thin, hollow tube the size of a balloon is inserted into the clogged artery. The balloon is slowly inflated to push the plaque out of the arteries. By doing this, the closed artery opens and the flow of blood starts smoothly. In most cases, this procedure is not done without inserting a stent.

Stent Placement

In this procedure, a small tube is inserted through a catheter into the blocked artery. This stent is mostly made of metal and is inserted in the patient's heart forever. Some stents are also made from such material, so they get mixed in your body over time. There are also some stents that contain medicines and help in preventing the artery from closing again.

Bypass Surgery

Your bypass surgery is done a few days after the heart attack. This process is done to normalise the blood flow in the body. With bypass surgery, your surgeon will use a blood cell from your chest or leg to restore blood flow to the blocked artery. Surgeons can bypass more than one artery.

What happens in the Coronary Care Unit?

After a heart attack, the patient stays in the CCU for at least 24 to 36 hours. Following things are done with the medicine after you come out of critical condition:

Nitrate heart to increase blood flow

Medicines such as aspirin, Brilinta, clopidogrel, Effient, heparin, or Plavix are given to thin the blood to prevent future clots.

Heart attack treatment 

When the patient comes to the hospital with a heart complaint, the doctor says that therefore the best treatment is primary angioplasty, which means that angiography is done, in which blockage is called, it is examined and the block that is blocked is kept open, then it is called primary angioplasty. This is a very good treatment because it completely restores the blood flow of the artery. Angioplasty increases the pumping rate of the heart. Where these services are not available, it is necessary for such patients to go to ICU so that Clot Dissolving injection can be given. This injection is called Fibrinolytic therapy. The benefit of this injection is 50% of the people who do not get it then they are shifted to a higher centre where angiography or angioplasty is done if needed.

Diagnosis and Treatment of an Acute Heart Attack:

To determine or confirm whether a person is having a heart attack and to see which areas of the arteries are significantly threatening the heart's normal functioning, doctors test heart rate and blood pressure for abnormalities and perform a series of diagnostic tests, including: 

  • Electrocardiogram (EKG)

  • Blood tests

  • Stress test

  • Angiogram with coronary catheterization, and

  • Echocardiogram etc.

Most treatment begins in the emergency room because a heart attack requires immediate medical attention. Various drugs are available to control symptoms and improve the condition. If it proves ineffective, the doctor may advise advanced treatment options such as surgery, angioplasty, stent placement, or coronary artery bypass graft (CABG), depending on the patient's heart and general health.

While at our emergency care unit, you can expect:
