How does lack of oxygen lead to heart attack or stroke?

The myocard (cardiac muscle), the muscle that makes your heart pump, needs oxygen to function. This oxygen is distributed through the blood that flows in the coronary arteries, which lie around the cardiac muscle. When there is not enough oxygen in your blood, the cardiac muscle does not get enough oxygen to fully function and your heart will not be able to function, over time. This starts at about 3 minutes after stopping to get oxygen.
