Time is muscle
What does it mean?
If person with heart attack wastes time to get right treatment, the delay is directly proportional to death of heart muscle.
More wastage of time and delay for the treatments either kills the patient or kills the heart muscle.
Heart is a pump. If the pump is damaged it can’t pump the blood properly to entire body which is called Heart failure.
Once heart muscle is damaged irreversibly however much you spend or whatever best treatment you get beyond golden hour can offer little help or no help.
So every minute counts.
Delay up to one hour causes 20% damage.
More than 8 hours damage nearly 70 % damage.
