The Constant Fear Of Another Incident
Life after a Heart Attack
To avoid a new incident, you should follow the following three commandments:
Measure, measure, measure
By constantly monitoring vitals such as your heart rate, blood pressure, and weight, complications can be discovered earlier on.
Adjust Your Lifestyle
An unhealthy lifestyle can raise your blood pressure or cholesterol. This in turn can lead to an increased chance of another heart attack.
If your cardiologist or general practitioner has prescribed certain medication, it is important that you follow the treatment carefully.

Difference between heart attack and cardiac arrest
The most common symptom is a pressing chest pain that may extend across the arms or jaws. You need medical help as soon as possible, but you are still conscious.
With cardiac arrest, the heart stops pumping entirely. As a result, the organs no longer receive blood and oxygen and you lose consciousness within a few seconds.
Immediate resuscitation or an electrical shock with an AED device is required to prevent permanent brain damage and improve chances of survival.
What are the chances of another heart attack?
The chance of having another heart attack varies from person to person. Hereditary predisposition can play a role, but it is never the only cause.
The risk of a heart attack is mainly related to key factors such as high blood pressure, high cholesterol, smoking or being overweight. If you had a heart attack, a healthy lifestyle is extra important.
Eat healthy, exercise sufficiently, and learn to deal with stress and tension. Since your vitals play an important role, check them daily. Deviations or irregularities can be an early warning sign. Finally, did your doctor prescribe any medication? Then take it according to the prescription.
