A heart attack is an acute medical emergency caused by a block in one of the coronary arteries. Its treatment is an emergency as it may be life-threatening if not given attention.
A heart attack is a block in the coronary artery whereas a cardiac arrest is the complete stopping of the heart’s functioning. It may or may not be due to a heart attack.
An angiogram is a diagnostic test in which a catheter is inserted into the patient’s body and the arteries are images in a fluoroscopy for the presence of a block through an injection. An angioplasty is a procedure where the block detected by the angiogram is cleared, usually with a metallic stent.
