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

Death of heart tissue leading to inability of the heart to pump

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.

Potential myocardial infarction or cardiac arrest on account of insufficient blood supply to the cardiac muscles.
