10 POINTS TO PREVENT HEART ATTACK !!

A heart attack occurs when the flow of blood to the heart is blocked. The blockage is most often a buildup of fat, cholesterol and other substances, which form a plaque in the arteries that feed the heart (coronary arteries).

The plaque eventually breaks away and forms a clot. The interrupted blood flow can damage or destroy part of the heart muscle.

A heart attack, also called a myocardial infarction, can be fatal, but treatment has improved dramatically over the years. It’s crucial to call 911 or emergency medical help if you think you might be having a heart attack.

10 ways to lower down the risk of heart disease?

  1. Control your blood pressure.
  2. Keep your cholesterol and triglyceride levels under control.
  3. Stay at a healthy weight.
  4. Eat a healthy diet
  5. Get regular exercise. 
  6. Limit alcohol.
  7. Don’t smoke.
  8. Manage stress
  9. Manage diabetes.
  10. Make sure that you get enough sleep.

What to do if you see someone who might be having a heart attack

If you see someone who’s unconscious and you believe is having a heart attack, first call for emergency medical help. Then check if the person is breathing and has a pulse. If the person isn’t breathing or you don’t find a pulse, only then should you begin CPR to keep blood flowing.
