High risk of CV complications in non-STEMI patients with fatigue

Adults with non- ST-elevation myocardial infarction (non-STEMI), a type of heart attack that mainly affects the heart’s lower chambers, and exhibiting fatigue and shortness of breath are more likely to die or be readmitted for cardiovascular (CV) complications at 1 year compared with those presenting with chest pain, reveals a recent study. Latest research by Dr Paulo Medeiros from Braga Hospital, Portugal, and his colleagues, presented at the ESC Acute CardioVascular Care Congress 2022, pointed out that while 76 percent of patients who experienced non-STEMI with dyspnea or fatigue as their main symptom were alive at 1 year, 94 percent of those with chest pain as the predominant feature survived. The study analysed data from 4,726 adults admitted with non-STEMI.
