Scientists have studied the impact of non-ST elevation myocardial infarction (in this case, the artery through which the heart is supplied with blood is partially blocked) and its various symptoms on the survival of patients. To do this, the researchers analyzed information from the Portuguese Registry of Acute Coronary Syndromes. During the work, 4726 patients were selected who were admitted with a heart attack from October 2010 to September 2019.
It turned out that a year after a heart attack, 76 percent of people were alive with shortness of breath or fatigue, 94 percent with chest pain, 92 percent with fainting. That is, those who had shortness of breath as the main symptom of a heart attack died more often.
All study results were presented at the European Society of Cardiology Scientific Congress – ESC Acute CardioVascular Care 2022.
