Caption: Heart attack: abstract composition of a relatively young man enduring the intense pain of a heart attack. Acute myocardial infarction, the medical term for the starvation of part of the heart muscle (the myocardium) due to an obstruction in blood supply, is often associated with severe chest pains. The pain of a heart attack has been likened to that caused by a great weight pressing on the chest & radiating down the arms. The mortality of acute heart disease depends largely on severity & subsequent speed of treatment; appropriate medication in the first hours after the attack is critical. Lightning version
