Myocardial Infarction means some of the heart muscle dies because of insufficient oxygen supply. Most often this occurs because the coronary artery is blocked by plaque & clot. Other causes include tears in the artery wall, extremely high oxygen demand (eg, rapid arrhythmia, heart valve disorder, or severe systemic illness.) Prompt treatment can minimize heart damage & ...Read more
Maybe: This depends on the length of time the brain was without blood flow, and the situation after the person was revived. In fact now many patients after CPR can be treated with hypothermia, which involves cooling the body slightly while the patient is sedated, (roughly to a temp of 93 degrees f) for about 24 hrs, this lowers the risk of brain damage in many cases. Many other factors involved however. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Can you explain if it's true that people with heart disease or heart problems live less than a healthy person?
To have a heart attack you do not have to have chest pain. can you have a heart attack while just feeling skipped beats as the only symptom?
Unlikely: Hi MoeA645, Yes, many people who have heart attacks do not suffer the typical symptoms of chest pain, difficulty breathing, nausea & sweating. Still, it's very unlikely feeling just a few skipped beats means you are having a heart attack. You may have something called palpitations, which are often nothing to worry about. If the skipped beats occur often or with other symptoms, I'd see a doctor. ...Read more
Reducing the chance: Healthy diet and regular moderately intensive aerobic exercises are the best weapons against heart diseases.

If you are doing all that you can, you are lowering your risk comparing to not doing. So eat well, sleep well, exercise, live longer. Consult doc. Good luck. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Generally yes: With aging, other factors become superimposed such as onset of coronary disease, hypertension, and senescent changes in diastolic function.

If otherwise healthy, can an anxiety or panic attack lead to a heart attack if your heart is racing extremely fast during that panic?
Is it true that smoking cig alone can cause a heart attack even if you are only 41.or do you have to have other uncontrolled condition?
That depends on..: How much you've smoked and for how long. Smoking by itself causes conditions that lead to blocked arteries. Add NSAIDS, high blood pressure, a family history, maybe some alcohol and other bad habits, yes, you could see heart disease. 2-3 packs a day for 20 years is a 40-60 pack year smoking history. It's not about chronological age, it's about biological age. Nothing ages us faster than smoking. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Yes: Stress can increase the demand for blood flow to the heart. If the coronary arteries have blockages, then they may not be able to supply enough blood to the heart muscle and a heart attack can occur. Takotsubo cardiomyopathy or "broken heart syndrome" can also be caused by stress. This condition causes the heart to enlarge and pump poorly. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
