Treatment of heart attack

To prevent permanent or fatal damage to the heart, immediate treatment is vital. Thrombolytic drugs can be administered to dissolve the clot in the artery. Other medications like nitrates, beta blockers or calcium channel blockers are also prescribed. A procedure called ‘angioplasty’ may also be recommended where the blocked artery is opened through an inflatable balloon tube. In more severe cases surgical management such as ‘bypass surgery’may be called for. Control of high blood pressure, diabetes and cholesterol with appropriate dietary and pharmaceutical measures is of paramount importance in the treatment of heart patients.
