ALERT! Get to know how to prevent heart disease
Heart attack is a serious heart disease when there is no blood supply to the heart muscle. This condition affects the heart's ability to allow blood to flow throughout the body. Heart attacks can be fatal if not treated immediately.
Heart attack, also known as myocardial infarction, occurs due to obstruction of blood flow to the heart muscle. The main cause of this condition is coronary heart disease.
These symptoms can vary from person to person. A heart attack can begin with a vague, uncomfortable pain or a dull or tight feeling in the center of the chest. Sometimes a heart attack only causes mild symptoms, so it is often misinterpreted as an increase in stomach acid or even ignored altogether.
Heart disease can be divided into 4 categories:
- Healthy can carry out work activities as usual
- You can work hard and when tired you do not should stop the activity, but just reduce the intensity/weight of the work and if you feel you are able to return within one or two minutes the intensity of work can be increased back and and so on.
- You can't do heavy work, but you can do light daily work, if you are tired, you should stop immediately and rest for a minute or two, it's okay to lie down, but if you are walking, you can rest standing shut up.
- The bad thing is, walking even a few meters is tiring, sometimes you need support.
