However, according to AHA data, more than one in four women and nearly one in five men died within a year of having a heart attack.* The risk factors for death after an MI may include a patient’s age, medical history, multiple medical conditions, severity of the heart attack, lifestyle behaviors, and adherence to treatment. Heart attack patients may be able to impact their health by managing the risk factors which are under their control, such as following their doctor’s instructions around making lifestyle adjustments and taking their medications as prescribed. Caregivers can be a valuable source of help for their loved ones during this difficult time.
