A heart attack occurs if the flow of oxygen-rich blood to a section of heart muscle suddenly becomes blocked. If blood flow isn't restored quickly, the section of heart muscle begins to die.

Diastole Is the period of time when the heart fills with blood after contraction. Ventricular diastole is the period during which the ventricles are relaxing, while atria diastole is the period during which the atria are relaxing.
