Acute Myocardial Infarction may Lead to Sudden Death


Although some people may seem to be healthy from the outside, it does not mean they don’t have a disease hidden in their body. Oftentimes, people who seem to be fit, die without a known cause or any warning signs. One of the diseases that commonly cause death is “acute myocardial infarction”.

Acute myocardial infarction or heart attack is caused by a sudden blockage of the coronary arteries, which interrupts the blood flow and causes insufficient blood in the heart.

When there is a lack of blood supply to the heart, the heart muscle will be destroyed, causing irregular heart rhythms. That causes pain and tightness in the chest, difficulty breathing as well as other possible symptoms, including nausea, vomiting, sweating, heart palpitations and wooziness. These symptoms may arise out of nowhere while engaging in everyday activities, working or playing a sport.

People at risk of Acute Myocardial Infarction are: 

  1. People with high blood pressure and high cholesterol 
  2. Diabetic patients
  3. Obese people
  4. Those with a high level of stress
  5. Smokers
  6. People who inactive or rarely exercise
  7. Males over 40 years old and females over 50 years old or have reached menopause 
  8. Those with a family history of heart disease

Taking care of the heart is crucial. Regular exercises, having a healthy diet, drinking enough water, getting enough rest and undergoing a heart checkup at least once a year are highly recommended. A heart checkup could screen the risks of developing heart disease and prevent acute myocardial infarction or heart attack.
