Shortness of breath was a symptom in which the risk of dying from a heart attack is higher This is proven by a recent study

The study, the results of which were presented on March 20, 2022 at the scientific congress of the European Society of Cardiology, showed that people who had a heart attack with shortness of breath were less likely to survive than those who experienced a heart attack with chest pain. More about this – in the article.

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.

The median age of the patients was 68 years, and 71 percent were men. The participants were divided into three groups: with shortness of breath or fatigue (7 percent, 332 people), chest pain (91 percent, 4313 people), fainting (2 percent, 81 people). Next, the experts compared the survival of these patients for one year.

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.
