Disease Process
Acute coronary syndrome, results from
reduced blood flow through one or more
coronary arteries, which causes myocardial
ischemia and necrosis Myocardial
infarction (MI) results when myocardial
tissue starts to die because of absent or
diminished blood su!!ly "hen heart tissue is
de!ri#ed of o$ygenated blood su!!ly for a
!eriod of time and an area of tissue in the
heart begins to die
A blood #essel su!!lying the heart muscle is
suddenly bloc%ed The heart muscle su!!lied
by this blood #essel is called the myocardium
The !art of the heart muscle su!!lied by this
artery loses its blood &and o$ygen' su!!ly if
the #essel is bloc%ed This !art of the heart
muscle is at ris% of dying unless the bloc%age
is (uic%ly remo#ed "hen the heart muscle is
damaged it is said to be infarcted The term
myocardial infarction means damaged heart

Diet and Acti#ity-4ifestyle changes
Encourage the !atient to !artici!ate in
a cardiac rehabilitation e$ercise
5uild u! your le#el of acti#ity
and e$ercise gradually
A reasonable goal by about si$
wee%s after ha#ing an MI is to
aim to wal% for 67-87 minutes
each day
/tress the need to sto! smo%ing If
necessary, refer the !atient to a
su!!ort grou!
9e#iew dietary restrictions with the
!atient If he must follow a low-
sodium, low-fat, or low-cholesterol
diet, !ro#ide a list of foods to a#oid
Eat at least five portions of a
variety of fruit and
vegetables each day They
are rich in #itamins and
minerals These can be fresh,
fro2en or dried
Limit the amount of
saturated fat you eat It is not
1ust about the total fat content
of the diet, but also the type of
fat in the diet Try to a#oid
eating foods that are high in
saturated fat +oods that are
high in saturated fat include
meat !ies, sausages, butter,
cream, hard cheese, ca%es,
biscuits and foods that contain
coconut or !alm oil Eating
foods that are high in
unsaturated fat can hel! to
reduce your cholesterol le#el
+oods high in unsaturated fat
include oily fish &such as
herring, mac%erel, sardine,
salmon', a#ocados, nuts and
seeds, sunflower, ra!eseed
and oli#e oil
Reduce you salt intake less
than 2000mg Many foods
contain hidden salt 4owering
your salt inta%e can reduce
your ris% of another MI and
also other cardio#ascular
Counsel the !atient to resume se$ual
acti#ity !rogressi#ely )e may need to
ta%e nitroglycerin before se$ual
intercourse to !re#ent chest !ain from
the increased acti#ity
Diabetes, )y!ertension, coronary
artery disease, and stro%es can all
come from being o#erweight which
lead to heart !roblems
More li%ely to ha#e MI because
diabetes damages arteries causing
them to harden causing
atherosclerosis which can cause
hy!ertension which then leads to
heart failure
A condition, which the force of blood
against your artery walls is high
enough and causes damage to the
#essels resulting in increased
wor%load on heart
