Taking Medication During Pregnancy

Q:

What happens to my heart during a heart attack?

A:

When a part of the heart muscle experiences a decrease in blood flow (which delivers oxygen), the affected part of the heart muscle dies and this is a heart attack. The decrease in blood flow to the heart is usually linked to a blockage. Ensuring you visit your physician regularly can help you monitor your heart health and watch for any warning signs of heart disease.
