Greenville & Paris, TX Heart Attack Treatment
Providing Life-saving Cardiac Healing
A heart attack usually occurs when a blood clot blocks flow to the heart in the arteries. An artery is a blood vessel that carries blood from the heart and throughout your body. An artery is different from a vein in the way that they have stronger, more elastic walls. They are quite a common phenomenon. One occurs every 40 seconds in the United States. The severity can be minor or quite serious, and can often occur without warning. It is the leading cause of death for men, women, and individuals of most racial and ethnic groups in the United States, according to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention. Sometimes, individuals do not know that they have suffered a heart attack, as one in five heart attacks is silent, but the damage will still be done to their body.
