Preventing Heart Attacks

10 Ways to Avoid a Heart Attack

Myocardial infarction is a heart attack. This happens when the cardiac muscle is injured or lacks oxygen. Obstructions cause many cardiac issues in arteries that convey cleansed blood out from the heart to various organs. Blood clots are another cause.

10 Ways to Avoid a Heart Attack

It’s hard to recognize a heart attack from heartburn. Tightness or soreness in the chest is a common sign of a heart attack. Chest discomfort, sweating, nausea, and vomiting. Intense pain in the chest and left arm. A few minutes of breathlessness. Get to the ER if you have any of the above symptoms.


If you think you have a heart attack, contact 911 and take Sorbitrate or aspirin. If allergic, avoid aspirin. This comprises thrombolysis and angioplasty. They’ll also inject clot-busters. Atherosclerosis, lack of exercise, obesity, and fast foods are all risk factors for a heart attack.

Reduce the risks of a heart attack by:

1. Quitting smoking.

2. Eating healthy. Avoid fatty foods, excess salt, and red meats.

3. Controlling high blood pressure and diabetes.

4. Ensuring regular exercise at least 30 minutes a day. Walking is most beneficial.

5. Preventing obesity. Doing all you can to maintain weight.

6. Choosing to live a healthy lifestyle.

7. Practicing meditation.

8. Doing regular relaxation and breathing exercises.

9. Undergoing periodic cardiac evaluations.

10. Including foods that are rich in antioxidants in your diet.

According to the American Heart Association, a killer disease, approximately 58.8 million people in the US suffer from heart diseases. And about 950,000 Americans die of heart ailments each year. Maintaining good health can avoid heart disease and mortality. Find a balance between work and leisure activities, get off the couch and into nature, and play sports instead of watching them on TV.

Engage in civic engagement. The American Heart Association — — and the National Center for Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion — have all the information you need regarding heart disease and prevention.
The adage “prevention is better than cure” could help a nation’s health.
