Knowing the Difference Between These 3 Heart Diseases Can Save a Life
There are 3 types of myocardial infarction:
STEMI(ST-segment myocardial infarction) occurs when a coronary artery is completely blocked and a large portion of the heart stops receiving blood. This is the most dangerous and deadliest type of heart attacks.
NSTEMI(non-ST-segment myocardial infarction) occurs when a coronary artery is only partially blocked and blood flow to the heart is restricted but not cut off. Though milder than STEMI and less damaging to the heart, this heart attack is still a serious condition.
Silent heart attack, unlike the two attacks mentioned above, presents itself with minimal symptoms or none at all. It occurs when oxygen supply to the heart is reduced due to a buildup of plaque, coronary artery spasm (a sudden tightening of the muscles of a coronary artery) or demand ischemia (increased oxygen demand or decreased supply of oxygen in the body). Having a silent heart attack puts a person at a greater risk of having a major and potentially fatal heart attack in the future.
