Learning about Heart Attack

Ann DeVelasco, Registered Nurse with Miami Cardiac and Vascular Institute, explains what happens in a heart attack: "The arteries carrying blood to your heart have developed plaque over time. Plaque is a buildup of a waxy substance called cholesterol. The wall of the heart becomes damaged."

She highlights the longer you have symptoms that go untreated, the more likely you are to have permanent muscle damage to the heart, which can cause you to die, or can cause your life to be greatly altered.
