When the heart pumps blood, it is called blood pressure and it circulates throughout the body. During a heart attack, the flow of blood to a part of the heart gets blocked. Sometimes due to this, the blood pressure decreases. At the same time, in some cases, there is no change in blood pressure during a heart attack, while in some cases the blood pressure also increases. Nothing can be said in advance about the change in blood pressure during a heart attack, so doctors do not include it in the symptoms of a heart attack.

Blood pressure can increase, decrease or remain normal during a heart attack. It depends on how the body is reacting.

Increased blood pressure

At the time of a heart attack, the blood pressure of many people increases. This increased blood pressure is called hypertension. The reason behind this is the release of hormones like adrenaline. When a situation of extreme danger approaches, the fight response is triggered, which releases hormones. This automatically makes the heart beat faster.

Low blood pressure

Many times the blood pressure also decreases at the time of heart attack. This reduced blood pressure is called hypotension. During a heart attack, the blood going toward the heart is completely stopped. It can also block or kill the tissue that makes up the heart muscle. These stagnant or dead tissues reduce the amount of blood, which makes the heart unable to pump blood to other parts of the body.

The vasovagal response is triggered in some people at the time of a heart attack. This response is the nervous system's response to a trigger such as excessive stress or pain. This also lowers blood pressure and may cause fainting. When the parasympathetic nervous system responsible for the body's relaxation goes on overdrive, it can also lower blood pressure.
