Average of 80,000 deaths from CHD, per year,in the UK. Sources: NIH, MAYO CLINIC, NHS, British Heart Foundation, A heart attack happens when blood flow to part of the heart muscle is blocked. The blockage harms part of the heart muscle because it is no longer getting oxygen from the blood. Most heart attacks are caused by a blood clot that blocks one of the coronary arteries. Occasionally, a heart attack can be caused by a spasm, or tightening, of a coronary artery. Coronary arteries are the blood vessels that supply oxygen-rich blood to the heart muscle. CHD is a condition in which a waxy substance called plaque builds up inside of the coronary arteries. These arteries supply oxygen-rich blood to your heart. * X-Rays, blood tests and other various scans may have to be executed in the diagnosis process. * Life-style changes and surgery are the only possible ways for improvement.
