A heart attack (acute myocardial infarction or AMI) occurs when blood stops flowing to a part of the heart muscle. The lack of blood flow is often caused by a clot in one of the heart's blood vessels. Without the oxygen carried in the blood, part of the heart muscle dies or is damaged.
Heart failure, also called congestive heart failure, is a life-threatening condition in which the heart can no longer pump enough blood to the rest of the body.
Pneumonia is an inflammation of the lungs caused by an infection. Many different organisms can cause it, including bacteria, viruses and fungi. Pneumonia is a common illness that affects millions of people each year in the United States.
