    Heart disease is the most common cause of death worldwide for both men and women. Anyone who has heart disease is at risk for a heart attack, also called a myocardial infraction. Learn more.

    What Is A Heart Attack?

    A heart attack happens when blood flow cannot reach the heart. Blood flow can become blocked due to a buildup of fat in the walls of the arteries. Heart attacks can be fatal. The likelihood of dying from a heart attack is lower if you act fast.

    Who Is At Risk?

    There are certain factors that put you at risk for myocardial infarction, including:

    • High cholesterol
    • High blood pressure
    • Obesity or being overweight
    • A family history
    • Diabetes
    • Depression
    • Smoking
    • A poor diet
    • Not exercising
    • Drinking alcohol regularly

    Heart attacks can happen very quickly. Therefore, don’t wait to get help if you experience any of these warning signs. Although some myocardial infractions are sudden and intense, most start slowly, with mild pain or discomfort. If you feel mild discomfort or pain, visit urgent care. However, pay attention to your body — and call 911 if you feel:

    1. Pain or discomfort in your chest or shoulder
    2. Lightheadedness, nausea or vomiting
    3. Jaw, neck or back pain
    4. Discomfort or pain in arm or shoulder
    5. Shortness of breath
    6. Cold sweats

    Act Fast

    Learn the signs, but remember this: Even if you’re not sure, go to urgent care. Minutes matter! Fast action can save lives — maybe your own. Don’t wait – call 911 or your emergency response number.
