Myocardial infarction is a medical term related to heart attack. Acute myocardial infarction is the major cause of death and disability worldwide, with an ongoing increase in incidence every year. Blood clot is the major reason for the occurrence of heart attack. The starved heart tissue dies if the cardiac ischemia lasts for longer period. Myocardial infarction (MI) is an extremely rare phenomenon and may be difficult to recognize. Patients suffering with myocardial infraction generally protestations on the sudden onset of pain in the anterior chest which creates heaviness, pressurized feeling. There are some complications arise along with myocardial infraction: cardiac failure, arrhythmias and shock. The preventive strategy which helps in reducing risk of reinfarction involves Cardiac rehabilitation. The impact factor of journal provides quantitative assessment tool for grading, evaluating, sorting and comparing journals of similar kind. It reflects the average number of citations to recent articles published in science and social science journals in a particular year or period, and is frequently used as a proxy for the relative importance of a journal within its field. It is first devised by Eugene Garfield, the founder of the Institute for Scientific Information. The impact factor of a journal is evaluated by dividing the number of current year citations to the source items published in that journal during the previous two years.
