Long Term Effects and Complications

After you've suffered a heart attack, your health will be closely monitored to avoid the risk of complications.

These include:1

  • Arrhythmias: Irregular heart rhythms
  • Cardiogenic shock: A sudden drop in blood pressure causing your heart to be unable to pump enough blood to your organs
  • Heart rupture: Damage to the heart wall, which may, in serious cases, cause the heart wall to rupture
