Abstract composition of a young man enduring the chest pain that precedes a heart attack. Acute myocardial infarction (starvation of part of the heart muscle) due to an obstruction in the blood supply, is often associated with severe chest pains. Smoking may cause raised blood pres- sure, respiratory complications, and a hardening of the arteries, which are conditions all implic- ated in eventual heart failure. The pain of heart attack has been likened to that caused by a great weight pressing on the chest and radiating down the arms. The mortality rate due to heart failure depends on severity, and speed of treatment.
