How fast dies a heart attack kill you?

Tags: , , , 8 Comments

A heart attack occurs when blood flow to a part of your heart is blocked for a long enough time that part of the heart muscle is damaged or dies. Your doctor calls this a myocardial infarction. Angioplasty is often the first choice of treatment. It should be done within 90 minutes after you get to the hospital, and no later than 12 hours after a heart attack. Any comments?

However this is just a ball park range and it is not necessarily bad if you go slightly over this, but as always it is a good idea to talk to your doctor about exercising. For someone that is 20, it is 140 to 170 beats per minute– thats pretty fast if you ask me!
