Washington: Is it possible to predict whether someone is likely to survive or die suddenly from a heart attack? Yes, says a new study.Researchers found that hypertension, body mass index (BMI), heart rate and additional markers that can be identified by an electrocardiogram (ECG) can differentiate between dying suddenly versus living through a heart attack."For some people, the first heart attack is more likely to be their last," said Elsayed Z. Soliman, director of the Epidemiological Cardiology Research Centre (EPICARE) at Wake Forest Baptist, who led the study."For these people especially, it is important that we find ways to prevent that first heart attack from ever happening because their chances of living through it are not as good," Soliman added, reports the journal Heart.
