What Happens During a Heart Attack? Signs and Symptoms | Medical Myths With Doctor ER

What is a heart attack? Board-Certified Emergency Medicine Physician, Dr. Jordan Wagner, discusses the early signs and symptoms of a heart attack. Approximately 1.5 million heart attacks and strokes occur every year in the United States. More than 800,000 people in the United States die from cardiovascular disease each year—that's 1 in every 3 deaths! So what causes a heart attack? Can people actually die from a broken heart? Can you have a heart attack without showing any symptoms? Don’t worry, in today’s episode of Myths About Medicine, I discuss all the leading causes, symptoms, and treatments of heart attacks. As well as the broader umbrella of deadly cardiovascular disease. If you want me to continue making educational medical videos about various diseases and illnesses, or if you want me to answer any other medical questions you have, please give this video a ‘like’ and leave me a comment below on which topic you’d like to see me cover next.
