If someone has a massive heart attack can you revise them ?

If someone has a massive heart attack can you revise them, if it just happened? If someone had a massive heart attack in front of you, or near you, could you take them to the hospital and try to get them help? Or would you say, There s nothing I can do .

My dad had a prostate biopsy done, and suffered an infection 1 day after. He was given a heavy dose of antibiotics in the hospital, and had fluid in his lungs and the next day, had a massive heart attack. He had an emergency operation and a stent was inserted. He is still in the hospital recovering. he had a hear by-pass 20+ years ago and he is 74 years old. Why has this happened? Was the prostate biopsy more harmful than helpful in his case? Will he recover at all from all these problems?

I have a friend who collapsed and looked like she was having a seizure. She was continuing to breath and then started making noises and stopped breathing. When we turned her from her side her face was purple. We found out after there was an autopsy that she had a massive heart attack. They are saying that her heart value exploded. Would there have been anyway to save her?

my friend is male, 58 yrs. Had a heart attack 3 yrs ago and had a bypass. He had a mild heart attack last month no bypass.Today at his check up his cardio. dr. said that he has an 80% blockage in 4 artries not counting the ones bypassed 3yrs ago.These blockages are in places where there is a 75% chance that an operation would kill him, according to the dr. The dr said that my friend is a walking time bomb, gave him 6-8 months and added that stress, strain, physcial exertion could cause it to happen quicker.I know diet and exercise are very important in keeping a healthy heart.Is there ANYTHING my friend can do except wait?

Hi, My father is 63 years old. 2 days back he suffered a chest pain for a long time when he was walking for quite sometimes. He did some chest examinations and after he was shown a cardiologist he told that apart from a blockage in heart there is a small miocadial infarction.
I don't stay with him and i really don't know what is the his health condition and what is the immediate doable for him.
He is fine now. Some medicines are given. I don't understand was it a heart attack because the doctor haven't told like that.
I stay in Bangalore and is in Kolkata. Pls suggest the immediate doable and places where treatments would be good.
Regards,
