Home Care for Seniors with Myocardial Infarction

Having a heart attack and surviving is kind of like a warning sign that means dramatic lifestyle changes at home as a survivor need to be taken in order to prevent a second and not so forgiving heart attack. Heart attacks, also known as Myocardial Infarction, occur when blood flow to a part of the heart muscle is deprived. There are five types of Heart Attack, but the most common occurs when plaque that has been building up in a coronary artery for a long time finally ruptures, which creates blood clotting and restricted blood flow to the heart.

Complications as a Heart Attack survivor may include aneurysm or rupture of the myocardium, mitral regurgitation, atrial fibrillation, ventricular fibrillation, ventricular tachycardia, heart failure, or a second heart attack.
