Doctors for Minor heart attack - Symptoms, Causes, and Treatment

'Minor heart attack' or 'mild heart attack' is called non-ST elevation myocardial infarction (NSTEMI) in medical language. NSTEMI can cause a partial blockage in one of the coronary arteries of the heart. This reduces the flow of blood to the heart. This condition can damage the heart and impair the heart's ability to pump blood throughout the body.

Damage to the heart from NSTEMI is less severe than from STEMI (a type of heart attack). Still, a heart attack, whether minor or major, can take a serious form. These can permanently damage the heart and increase the risk of heart disease later on.

Its treatment will depend on the amount of blockage and the severity of NSTEMI. For this, the Global Registry of Acute Coronary Events (GRACE) score will determine whether the cardiovascular problem is low, moderate, or high risk. Doctors use these eight parameters to calculate this score -

  • Age
  • Heart rate
  • Systolic blood pressure
  • Heartbeat
  • Serum creatinine level
  • Cardiac arrest on hospitalization
  • ST segment deviation in ECG
  • Elevated cardiac markers

Medicines are used for people who are at low risk of NSTEMI. Medications that may be given include anticoagulants, antiplatelets, beta-blockers, nitrates, statins, angiotensin-converting-enzyme (ACE) inhibitors, or angiotensin receptor blockers (ARBs).

For people with moderate to high risk, either a percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI-a type of surgical procedure) or a coronary artery bypass graft (CABG-a type of surgical procedure) is performed.
