                                                WHAT IS A HEART ATTACK 
           Heart is one of the most vital organ of the human body.It's main function is to pump oxygen & nutrient rich blood to various other parts of the human body. But being made of  a special kind of muscle called Myocardium it has to supply itself with fresh blood too. Technically known as Myocardial Infraction (MI) or Acute Myocardial Infarction (AMI) a heart attack occurs when the oxygen-rich blood is not flowed to a part of the heart muscle, due to a block in the coronary artery. 
        The block is caused by the deposition of cholesterol, fatty acids & white blood cells in the inner walls of the artery. It is a waxy substance called Plaque(plak). If this block is not checked for a period of time it starts to damage the tissues of the heart. Prolonging this condition , causes the tissues to die & ultimately resulting  in a Heart Attack.
