    There  are Many,  You   hear  about  Heart attacks  MI's and  Angina  have to  do with The  Oxygen  Blood  supply to  the heart Muscle   without  Oxygen   getting to the  cells IN  the heart ( Due to a  clogged  artery)   part of the heart  muscle   is blocked   causing this  Huge  pain and   the affected  Muscle  tissue  which dies ... Often you  hear  a triple or  quadruple   Bypass and  this is  the  Cardio doctor  Finding  3 or 4   Arteries  Blocked   with  Cholesterol or  "plaque"   which is  the  fats  along with  Blood platelets   clogging and  clotting to  the  goop  and  hardening   even more....  There  are  also   situations  that  occur in arteries  called  aneurysms  which is  when  the  layers in an artery   tear  or  split  apart  Like a  Garden hose  that  gets  crimped   back and forth this  can   deflect the   blood  flow  cutting off  Organs  like the   arms or brain or  kidneys   as well as  anywhere else or  IT could  Explode    wide open  causing  you to  bleed  to death Inside  you body  obviously  an artery in the  Brain  is tiny  but  can affect  the functions   that area  "drives"  headaches and  Pains   can be  terrible  when  it happens  other  might   Loose   function  to "other  organs"    like the  kidneys   which filter the  blood  and get rid of  waste   from the cells  in your  Urine   so  In an  certain situation   You   could become  toxic   from  the  lack of  ability to  cleanse the  cells, In Fact   that is  kind of  what   "HEART  FAILURE"   the illness   is all about  it begins   with Inefficient  kidney and   Cell   production and   people will find  the ankles   swell  and swell,   In  elderly  bed  ridden   people  the  water   (basically   fills   any space  it can between  tissues  all the way  up )   IF you  ever  knew a  grandparent  or  Great  GP   who was  on they're  death bed   often   they were suffering  from  "Congestive  Heart  Failure "  where  the  water    Gets bad  enough to  stop the  heart from pumping  OVER   periods of time    its  all  related  and  each of use will  be  getting an education  about   various  aspects of it   other   people    have issues  Like   Valves   that  Leak  Because  the   valve  doesn't close  all the way,  so it spews  blood....  4 chambers   2  Atria  2  Ventricles   that   each works  to move  the blood  Along  the way  Out  the   Aorta   fresh oxygen rich blood   goes  out to the  cells, delivers   Oxygen and  Take  out  the trash on its way .    the blood   circulates  back into the  Veins  side   and  into Kidneys and to  the Vena Cava,   and is  Boosted   to  the lungs  It has to be  boosted   the 1st time  was enough to  get it to the cells and  the  stuff behind  pushes  it  back  SLOWLY  (oozing)   the heart  steps  up  the pressure to  force it into  the lungs  to  receive  more  oxygen.....  back to the  heart again... IF one of the  chambers  or  valves  is  working less  effectively   that  screws up the whole   system,  before long you  are  having  arrhythmia  (depending on what and where)   or  Flutters,  over  time  when you   ignore them  that  one   chamber  working  twice as  hard  as  the other ones  Begins  to do what any  muscle  does   Gets  stronger,   but in the  heart  the  septum   separates   each side  as well as  atria  from  Ventricle  IF the   center   Septum   (wall)   thickens and  thickens    then NONE   of the   chambers  will work  effectively  anymore  Like   putting a  ruler   sideways in your  wallet   Its  not  going to  flex  Normally  again...  long term   this  can  cause  issues  and  People  are Born with Bad  valves  hole in the  septum's   Cardiomyopathy (s)   ( this  thickening of  the heart walls  or  even  electrical   problems   (pacemakers)....  so Its  Not  a simple  thing to diagnose  Your  Mom   vs  you  Father       hope   This  Might  help you

    Fibrillation ("heart moving, but not in coordination"), stroke, embolism, clogged arteries, heart not beating sufficiently hard to supply blood to other parts of the body ("congestive heart failure").

    Heart not beating is generally fatal.
