A heart attack (also called a myocardial infarction) happens when the heart muscle does not get enough oxygen and nutrients and becomes damaged. The amount of damage depends on the location of the blockage and how long the muscle is without blood. Getting medical attention early helps to reduce the amount of damaged caused by a blockage.
