There are two types of heart attack, segment elevation and non-segment elevation.~ST=complete occlusion of a major coronary artery, an entire thick portion of heart is damaged~NST=partial occlusion of a major coronary artery or complete occlusion of a minor coronary artery, partial damage to a portion of the heartThe clog in the coronary artery is due to cholesterol buildup
