Cardiovascular disease is considered to be the biggest risk factor for premature death all over the world.

Heart disease has quite a few known risk factors, including smoking, obesity, inactivity, high blood pressure or cholesterol, poor diet, family history and also stress.

How does smoking affect heart health?

"The substances that are exhaled during cigarette smoking affect the cardiovascular system in several ways. First, the substances in cigarettes damage the integrity of the inner wall of blood vessels. For narrowing of the artery, "explains Dr. Inbar Nardi Agmon, an expert in internal medicine and a specialist in cardiology.

"Another mechanism is the narrowing of small blood vessels, which lowers the blood supply and with it the normal oxygen supply needed for the tissue. In addition, areas of damage to the inner wall of the blood vessels are prone to catastrophe - in these areas "In another mechanism, long-term smoking that harms health may also make it difficult and adversely affect the right side of the heart."

How is a heart attack identified?

The main cause of heart attack is heart disease in which coronary artery stenosis occurs due to accumulation of fat in their wall.

The chance of blood vessel narrowing and heart attack increases with a family history of heart disease, unhealthy lifestyle and diseases like diabetes.



The typical symptoms of a heart attack are chest pains.

The pain can radiate to the abdomen, shoulders, neck, throat, lower jaw or teeth.

The pain can be mild at first and develop gradually over minutes to hours.

Other symptoms include shortness of breath, nausea, vomiting or belching, a strong pulse and a feeling of missing beats, fatigue or a feeling of fainting.

It should be noted that almost half of all heart attacks are silent attacks that occur without any symptoms, or with uncharacteristic symptoms.

What causes cardiac arrest?

Cardiac arrest can be caused as a result of various types of arrhythmias, which are electrical changes in the heart that usually cause a very rapid and dangerous increase in heart rate or rapid and irregular beats, and in some cases even an extreme slowdown in heart rate.

Cardiac arrest is relatively common, causing about 15 percent of deaths in industrialized countries, although small studies show slightly lower numbers.

This is in any case the most common cause of death in the Western world.

Background of heart disease increases the risk of cardiac arrest.

There are a number of factors that can cause cardiac arrest, but the most common is arrhythmia of the ventricles.

The risk of this increases in cases of disruption of the blood supply to the heart itself or structural changes of the heart (hypertrophic cardiomyopathy - thickening of the heart muscle).

Other risk factors associated with cardiac arrest are extreme stress, mental or physical, which causes an abnormal increase in heart rate especially in people with an underlying heart problem.



Many risk factors have been linked to such an event, including of course a personal or family history of heart disease and a family history of sudden death.

In addition, medical conditions such as obstructive sleep apnea, extreme overweight and even living in areas with high air pollution have been found to be associated with an increased risk of sudden cardiac death.

What is the difference between cardiac arrest and heart attack?

Although there is sometimes confusion between the terms, cardiac arrest and myocardial infarction (heart attack) are different from each other.

Myocardial infarction is caused by a blockage in the arteries, which causes a slowdown or complete cessation of blood flow to various areas of the heart.

Cardiac arrest occurs as a result of a disruption in the electrical activity of the heart.



The two conditions are also related to each other - myocardial infarction is one of the factors that can eventually lead to a fatal heart rhythm disorder and cardiac arrest.
