Acute Myocardial Infraction; Myocardial Infarction 

 

A heart attack occurs when the supply of blood and oxygen to an area of heart muscle is blocked, usually by a clot in a coronary artery. Often, this blockage leads to arrhythmias (irregular heartbeat or rhythm) that cause a severe decrease in the pumping function of the heart and may bring about sudden death. If the blockage is not treated within a few hours, the affected heart muscle will die and be replaced by scar tissue.

Docosahexaenoic acid (commonly known as DHA; 22:6 omega-3) is an omega-3 fatty acid. It is most often found in fish oil.
