    Senior man with chest pain

    bout every 40 seconds, someone in the United States has a heart attack. A heart attack, also called an acute myocardial infarction, happens when the blood that brings oxygen to the heart is severely reduced or completely blocked. This is usually caused by buildup of fat, cholesterol, or other substances in an artery in the heart.1

    Heart attack data are available on the MiTracking data portal.
