Heart Blockage and its Symptoms

What is heart blockage?

Heart blockage is a term commonly used by patients referring to coronary artery disease, a build-up of plaque-causing narrowing of the arteries that supply the heart muscle with blood.

According to health experts, a healthy human heart beats at a rate of 60 to 100 times a minute. In this case, a heartbeat is a contraction of the heart muscles, which pushes blood around the body.

Normally, each heart muscle contraction is regulated by electrical signals that move from the atria or the upper chambers of the heart to the ventricles, or the lower chambers.

Partial heart blockage

A partial heart blockage happens if the electrical impulses are slow or closed, preventing the heart from beating normally.

Complete blockage

A complete heart block is during the electrical signals stop completely. In this case, the heartbeat will drop to about 40 times per minute.

Modifications to impulses that last only a fraction of a second can create heart block.

Also sometimes, a heart block causes problems for the heart to pump blood accurately through the circulatory system. So the muscles and organs including the brain do not receive enough oxygen to work properly.
