In brief: Five (5%) first MI

While heart disease usually is more advanced in women when first discovered, the MI mortality is about the same.
This death rate has dropped significantly over the last 30 years. With rapid response teams, door to ballon times of under an hour, improved medical management, the 5 year survival after a heart attack is over 75%.
