Mini Heart Attack:
Pain in the heart and in heart arteries which is caused by a lack of oxygen is called a mini heart attack. , a person knows that he or she is facing a mini heart attack. This is long for 15 minutes but not much. This doesn’t give much pain like an actual heart attack. That lack of oxygen that happens in a mini heart attack is called silent ischemia. A silent heart attack, known as a silent myocardial infarction (SMI), account for 45% of heart attacks and strike men more than women. They are described as “silent” because when they occur, their symptoms lack the intensity of a classic heart attack, such as extreme chest pain and pressure; stabbing pain in the arm, neck, or jaw; sudden shortness of breath; sweating, and dizziness.
Deborah Ekery, M.D., a clinical cardiologist at Heart Hospital of Austin and with Austin Heart in Austin, TX. says “But it is like any other heart attack where blood flow to a section of the heart is temporarily blocked and can cause scarring and damage to the heart muscle.”
