41-year-old Chang Chia Ming, expert in Vung Ang Economic Zone in Ha Tinh Province July 12 experienced acute myocardial infarction. He was rushed to the hospital when he had terrible chest pain, breathing problem threatening his life.
Through examination, doctors found out that Taiwanese man’s heartbeat slowed down; consequently, doctors had to put a pacemaker - a medical device implanted in the chest that stimulates heart contractions via small electrical impulses and then take X-ray which showed that the man’s right coronary artery is totally blocked.
Accordingly, doctors performed a surgery to remove the blood clot and place a coronary stent - a tube-shaped device placed in the coronary arteries that supply blood to the heart, to keep the arteries open in the treatment of coronary heart disease.
The man was off the danger list.
