Acute Coronary Syndrome and Heart Attack


If you have acute
coronary syndrome, you have one or more
conditions caused by a blockage of blood
flow to your heart muscle. This is a medical
emergency, because you may be having a heart attack,
a condition in which your heart muscle begins to die. Your heart is a
muscular organ that pumps blood
containing the oxygen and nutrients your body needs. The main pumping chamber of your
heart is the left ventricle. When your left
ventricle contracts, it sends oxygen-rich
blood to your body through a large artery
called the aorta. Connected to your aorta
are small arteries called coronary arteries. Blood flows from your aorta,
through the coronary arteries, to supply your heart muscle
with oxygen and nutrients. If you have acute
coronary syndrome, blood flow through
your coronary arteries is severely reduced
or completely blocked. One possible cause of reduced
blood flow is atherosclerosis. In this condition, a
build-up of a fatty substance called plaque can narrow
your coronary arteries. If this plaque
ruptures, a blood clot can form and block the artery. A blood clot is the
most common cause of coronary artery blockage. Other, less common causes
of reduced blood flow include coronary artery
spasm or dissection. In a coronary artery
spasm, triggers such as drugs, smoking, cold
weather, and extreme stress or emotions can cause a
temporary and sudden tightening of a coronary artery. During a coronary
artery dissection, the inside wall of one
of your coronary arteries separates, which can
block blood flow. Regardless of the
cause, a blockage in either coronary
artery prevents the oxygen and
nutrients in your blood from reaching the part of your
heart supplied by the artery. As a result, heart muscle
in that area starts to die. Death of part of
your heart muscle is called a heart attack. It’s also known as a
myocardial infarction or MI. A blocked coronary
artery may also cause you to feel sudden
pain, discomfort, tightening, or a burning sensation in
your chest called angina. This pain may extend to your
upper abdomen, shoulders, arms, neck, and lower jaw. If you have angina
when you’re at rest, or frequent angina
that prevents even moderate physical activity,
you have unstable angina, which is the main symptom
of acute coronary syndrome. Other symptoms of
acute coronary syndrome include shortness of
breath, dizziness, nausea, and sweating. If you’ve had a
heart attack or have other types of acute
coronary syndrome, your doctor may
prescribe oxygen therapy to get more oxygen
into your blood. You may take aspirin or other
prescription blood-thinner drugs to prevent blood clots. Thrombolytics also known
as clot-buster drugs, may be used to break up
any existing blood clots. Drugs such as
nitroglycerin and morphine will relax your
coronary arteries and relieve the pain of angina. You may also receive drugs
called beta blockers that slow down your heart and
reduce its need for oxygen. Your doctor may also recommend
immediate surgical procedures, such as coronary angioplasty, in
which a balloon-tipped catheter inflates inside your blocked
coronary artery to open it. may leave behind a mesh-like
device called a stent After inflating, the balloon catheter
may leave behind a mesh-like device called a stent
to hold your artery open. Or you may have a coronary
artery bypass graft, or CABG. CABG is a surgical
procedure in which the blocked areas of the coronary arteries are bypassed with veins or
artificial graft material. Seek treatment
immediately if you have the symptoms of
acute coronary syndrome.

  1. Everyone should check out Dr Eric Berg’s information on vitamin D3 vitamin K2 (MK7) for extremely important information on removing arterial plaque and proper transportation of calcium into bones and teeth. Share widely.

  2. I’m 12, healthy, have a good life ahead of me, so well in school. One day during a sports game, my chest started to hurt a lot, I was rushed to the hospital, because our family has a heart disease running through it. I was put right into the children’s center, HIV and everything, monitored up, closely watched, then all of the sudden…. my heart completely stopped working… just a line, they did so much, and they couldn’t get my heartbeat to come back. They all left the room but my family, everyone was crying, mom and dad holding my, cold hand, then… my heart beat decided it wasn’t time to pass on, it came back, the doctors came back in to make sure I was okay, and they didn’t leave for 13 hours. I was still in a bad condition. 1 month later out of the hospital, I was diagnosed, with a heart disease, 14/11/18, never forget. ♥️😥 live life to the fullest, because I could pass our right now, and not come back.

  5. LSU and pro basketball star Pete Maravich literally dropped dead at the age of 40 while shooting hoops with some friends. Turns out he was born without a left coronary artery that was revealed only after the autopsy. His right coronary was carrying all the load, even as an athlete. At the time of his death his heart was massively enlarged and scarred secondary to long-standing chronic oxygen deprivation. Pathologists were shocked that he lived as long as he did.

  6. Methylation is the big deal, and it needs to be "just right" like Goldilocks said! howtorecoverus.wordpress.com/2019/03/13/the-paleo-approach-to-food-minimize-it-all-you-like-but-it-could-save-your-life/ and howtorecoverus.wordpress.com/2019/03/09/methylation-the-rosetta-stone-for-health-and-how-folic-acid-synthetic-folate-is-not-part-of-this-translation/

  10. My father had a heart attack before I immediately ran to the medicine cabinet and fetched two aspirin 81MG tablets and gave them to him to chewed and then I sat there and prayed. His eyeballs started to roll back and his right hand was clenched to his chest like a magnet to a fridge finally I decided to call 911 but it was too little too late and he didn't make it.. R.I.P Pops 1946 – 1994. Wish I was a little quicker to make the decision to dial those 3 digits but I was young, naive, and just an all around stupid kid. Luckily my mother met another man and that man raised me as his own I call him by his real name though "Georgie" because "Step Dad" is just plain creepy and frankly gives me the heebie-jeebies.

  17. Mrs Jennifer, was diagnosed with ALS (Amyltrophic Lateral Sclerosis) also known as MND (Motor-neuron Disease) or Lou Gehrig's disease in November of 2012. I was told I had a year to live, no more than two at best. I believed the doctors for only a short time, then decided that dying of ALS was not acceptable. My wife, debby and I, embarked on a journey to heal. We were introduced to an African herbal medicine doctor whose herbs caused a turn around in my life. I've been on these African herbal drugs and i'm doing greatly. no more saliva and now i can use my arms and feet. all thanks to Dr.Omoiks the great African Herbal Dr …. If he can do mine, he can help others too.

  18. People, please don't smoke. Get some regular excercise and keep a healthy diet and you will not have to worry about this.

  19. Have you ever think of this ? Most (not most tbh) people who died from heart attack were usually someone who exercise more than a normal people.

  20. Bad cholesterol or Low-Density Lipoproteins aka LDL, which comes from the consumption of meats, particularly non-grass fed steroid red meats, is what starts the process that results in a heart attack. The LDLs becomes soft calcified plaque in the blood due to oxidation. Specialized immune cells (macrophages) called foam cells will consume this bad cholesterol. When they become engorged they look like soap bubbles, hence the name foam cells. These foam cells are then covered over with the same smooth material inside your blood pathways. They form these little hills or bumps inside the pathway. This is to keep the poisonous substance inside from getting into the blood stream while keeping a smooth interior surface for blood to pass. There are a limited number of foam cells. So when they are all full…that's it. If the bad diet continues, the unconsumed soft calcified plaque becomes hard calcified plaque which is like shards of glass. These glass-like hard calcified plaque shards move in the blood flow faster when you exercise or exert. When they encounter the smoothed over foam cell bumps, they slice them open causing the poisonous material inside to be released. The body quickly reacts to seal off that area where this poison release has taken place.

    It is the reaction of sealing the pathway, if it happens in the heart, that causes the heart attack. If it happens in a pathway in the brain, its causes a stroke.
