What happens after a heart attack?

After someone is treated for a heart attack and blood flow has been restored, patients usually take medications to keep their blood flow clear. Diet and other lifestyle changes can also help to minimize future heart attack risk. Your blood sugar and blood pressure should be checked periodically, which can help in identifying the risk of you having any subsequent heart attacks.
