Acute Coronary Syndrome & Heart Attack (ACS)

Description

A heart attack, also called an acute myocardial infarct (AMI), is caused by a blockage in the heart's arteries that completely cuts off the blood supply to a portion of the heart. Without prompt medical treatment, this blockage can damage or destroy heart tissue and can kill.
