Deaths from Heart Attacks – Good News

Print This Post Print This Post

In a very encouraging report involving 44,373 patients, spanning 7 years, and involving England, Germany, Canada, France and Spain they found that the death rates fell from 8.4% to 4.5%. Even in Mild heart attacks the death rate was reduced from 2.9% to 2%. These improvements have been attributable to angioplasty (putting a catheter into the artery of the heart and opening up the blockage), and anti clotting medicines. The risk of heart failure brought on by a severe heart attack was also reduced from 7.1% to 4.7%. All of this points to coordinated efforts from the Emergency Room to the operating room in record time. Time to treatment seems to be the critical factor in heart attack survival.
