What are the Causes of Heart Attack?

  • A steady supply of oxygen-rich blood is mandatory by heart muscle. Your coronary arteries provide this vital blood supply to your heart.
  • When you have coronary artery disease, your arteries narrow, preventing blood from flowing as freely as it should. A heart attack occurs when your blood supply is cut off.
  • Plaques form when fat, proteins, calcium, and inflammatory cells pile up in your arteries. On the inside, these plaque are mushy and soft, but on the outside, deposits are hard.
  • The outer shell of the plaque fractures when it becomes hard. This is referred to as a rupture. Blood clots form around the plaque as platelets (disc-shaped particles in your blood that help it clot) arrive. Your heart muscle will be deprived of oxygen if a blood clot plugs an artery. Muscle cells die quickly, resulting in irreversible injury.
  • The muscle lining of your blood arteries permits them to widen or narrow as needed. When those muscles twitch or spasm, the blood supply to the heart muscle is cut off.
  • An embolism is a blood clot or air bubble that becomes trapped in a coronary artery.
  • A heart attack can be caused by having too much or too little potassium in your blood.
  • An eating disorder can harm your heart over time, eventually leading to a heart attack.
