A heart attack is an attack directed at the heart. A stroke is blockage that occurs in a blood vessel in the brain.

There is very little difference. Heart attacks happen when blood vessels supplying the heart with blood get blocked, leading to cardiac arrest and in extreme cases leading to the death of heart tissue.
Strokes happen when blood vessels supplying the brain with blood get blocked, sometimes leading to the death of those cells because they were starved of oxygen.
Usually the blockage is caused by a thrombosis (a blood clot) coupled with narrowing and hardening of the vessels because of a build-up of cholesterol.

A stroke clogs the brain of blood. A heart attack does the same, but to the heart.


A stroke can not cause a heart attack. They both are similar. The stroke is caused by problems in the brain. Heart attacks are caused by clots or problems with the heart.


A stroke and a heart attack are very similar and is caused by not enough blood getting to the brain (stroke) or heart (heart attack). Both are deadly and both can result in permanent damage if someone survives.


A stroke is a disruption of the blood supply to the brain can cause part of the brain not to function. A heart attack is an interruption of the blood supply to the heart due to for example, blockage of artery leading to the heart. Causes heart cells to die.


Actually, stroke can cause heart attacks.


A heart attack occurs when blood flow to a part of the heart is blocked, usually by a blood clot. Without oxygenated blood, the heart muscle begins to die. A stroke is a brain attack, cutting off vital blood flow and oxygen to the brain. Stroke happens when a blood vessel feeding the brain gets clogged or bursts.

The cause is vascular with the effect being shown in the heart in one case and the brain in the other


Heart attack means you have one of the blood vessels choked in your heart. This gives rise to some of the part of heart dead. In stroke you usually have the blood supply of the brain affected. That gives rise to paralysis of some part of your body, usually.


A heart attack clogs up the blood in the heart, while a stroke clogs up the blood in the brain. They are caused by the same thing, really, just in different areas of the body.




A massive heart attack or possibly stroke


you get a heart attack or mini heart attack or mini stroke


Myocardial infarction is also known as a heart attack. Strokes occur in the brain.


· Angina· Coronary heart disease· Heart arrhythmias -- an irregular heart rhythm· Transient ischemic attack(TIA, or "mini" stroke)· Heart attack· Stroke· Peripheral artery disease· High blood pressure.



he die from a heart attack or a stroke



he had a stroke in Washington dc


renal disease, heart attack and stroke.


the answer is high cholesterol because high cholesterol lowers your blood sugars which your brain and heart need, increasing the risk of heart attack or stroke.


A stroke is brain failure due to lack of oxygen and a cardiac arrest happens due to the heart ceasing or a function of your heart is interrupted.


Stroke volume is used to measure the heart rate and arterial pressure. Most people who have had a heart attack or stroke or are at risk of having either of these issues must have their heart tested using stroke volume.


Your heart stops, it may not start again.
