Causes of heart attacks

The heart is a muscular organ, located approximately in the middle of the chest, tilted slightly to the left, and the heart, in turn, as part of the circulatory system, acts as a highly efficient blood pump; Where the heart beats continuously, at a rate of approximately 100 thousand times throughout the day, to transport the blood loaded with oxygen to various parts of the body, and the oxygen-poor blood is transported to the lungs to load it with the oxygen that the body's tissues need to do their functions, and the heart consists of four chambers; The function of each can be shown on the right atrium, as the right atrium receives blood from the blood vessels and transports it to the right ventricle, and the right ventricle, after the blood reaches the right ventricle, pumps it in turn to the lungs, where it is loaded with oxygen, and the left atrium is filled with oxygenated blood from the lungs in The left atrium, which in turn moves it to the left ventricle, and the left ventricle at the end. The left ventricle, which is the strongest chamber of the heart, pumps blood to distribute it to different body tissues.
