What is heart attack?
Height of emotional or physical stress can cause damage to the areas of atherosclerosis (areas of heart's blood vessel wall weakened by fat deposition) & can trigger formation of a blood clot inside a narrowed heart's blood vessel, leading to sudden stoppage of blood flow (which contains oxygen & nutrition for heart) in a coronary artery. This causes significant damage to the heart. This event is called Heart Attack.
