A large observational study was presented at the Acute Cardiovascular Care 2019 a European Society of Cardiology (ESC) congress. It has found that heart attack patients survive longer if they are taken to heart centres early. Most patients admitted directly to heart care centres were mostly older and male. This finding was interpreted as younger […]Continue Reading ...
Even though fewer heart attacks are occurring in the U.S.–in large part due to the use of medications like statins and a decline in smoking–these events are steadily rising in very young adults. New data not only validate this trend but also reveal that more heart attacks are striking those under age 40, according to […]Continue Reading ...
Advances in medical treatments and prevention strategies have dramatically decreased mortality from coronary heart disease over the past 40 years. However, a recent study found that heart attack rate is increasing in younger women. aslysun | Shutterstock The overall heart attack rate remains higher in men, but fatalities are more common among women.

Heart attack survivors may think the worst is behind them. But many later develop heart failure, a progressive disease marked by shortness of breath and swelling in the legs. Symptoms can prevent patients from working, exercising — even picking up grandchildren. Heart failure occurs after a heart attack when enough of the heart muscle dies, causing […]Continue Reading ...
Credit: CC0 Public Domain Scientists at the Peter Munk Cardiac Centre have identified the type of cell key to helping the heart repair and potentially regenerate following a heart attack. These cells, referred to as macrophages, have the ability to act in a neo-natal-like state, a time in life where they aid in the growth […]Continue Reading ...
TUESDAY, Dec. 11, 2018 — Women often delay calling for emergency help when heart attack symptoms start, a new study finds. Researchers in Switzerland found that women suffering a heart attack typically waited 37 minutes longer than men before calling an ambulance. And those delays showed no signs of improving over the 16-year study period. […]Continue Reading ...

Mar 14 2019 Heart attack, or myocardial infarction, is the number one cause of death worldwide. A study published in the European Heart Journal by scientists at Helmholtz Zentrum München and colleagues from a range of other Bavarian institutions shows that the risk of suffering a heat-induced heart attack has increased significantly in recent years. […]Continue Reading ...
Heart attack survivors are at greater risk of developing heart failure, a chronic condition in which more than half of those diagnosed will die within five years. In response, researchers at the University of Arizona College of Medicine – Phoenix are attempting to prevent heart failure after a heart attack with a novel treatment that […]Continue Reading ...
(HealthDay)—Since 2008, there has been an increase in the number of U.S. adults with awareness of heart attack symptoms and knowledge of the appropriate response to a heart attack, according to research published in the Feb. 8 issue of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report. Jing Fang, M.D., […]Continue Reading ...

Dec 27 2018 Eating healthy and not stopping physical activity should be the norm According to a new study, Christmas Eve is one of the most dangerous times of the year for the heart. It has indicated that a person’s risk for heart attack reaches its peak around late night a day before Christmas. Christmas […]Continue Reading ...
Heart attacks are not all the same. Researchers previously knew that people with peripheral artery disease, a condition caused by the narrowing of blood vessels in the arms and legs, were at an elevated risk of heart attack. But a new study has found that people with PAD are also more likely to have a rarer […]Continue Reading ...
Diabetes, high blood pressure and elevated cholesterol are well-known risk factors for cardiovascular disease. But what about just getting sick? Could picking up some type of bug increase your chance of having a stroke or heart attack? A new study suggests it could. Researchers have linked infections such as pneumonia and urinary tract infections to […]Continue Reading ...
