The Most Misinterpreted Medical Condition
Meta Description: There are various medical conditions that are misinterpreted by people. Here is the most common one and how you can take precautions for it.

You read in the paper or hear in the news that someone died of a “heart attack” when what they mean is that the person’s heart *stopped*.

When the heart stops, it’s a cardiac arrest. In contrast, a heart attack is a myocardial infarction (MI). In MI, an artery of the heart gets blocked. The lack of blood supply causes the death of the muscle tissue in the area of the heart that the blood vessel normally supplies.

Although a heart attack can make the heart stop, either instantly or later on, so can countless other things. So one should wear medical ID bracelets as they can detect such issues and call for help immediately. Hence it can also prove to be a life-saving device.

Electric shocks can disrupt the heart’s rhythm so that it stops pumping blood efficiently, after which the heart often stops completely. Allergic reactions and other conditions can cause shock, in which the blood pressure drops so low that the vital organs don’t get enough blood, resulting in death. Anything that blocks the airway can result in insufficient oxygen to the heart and other vital organs. But those are most certainly aren’t heart attacks.

The real frustration is that sometimes it’s very hard to tell exactly what did cause a person’s heart to stop. You cannot know when, how, and why it would stop, you can only take precautions. Wear a medical bracelets at all times so even though your loved ones have one in the middle of nowhere and no one is with them, at least a medical alert bracelet will alert the relevant services and the person’s life can be saved.
