Rapid medical advances since 1950 have dramatically increased the chance of surviving heart attack and living a full life with ischemic heart disease. "Instead of one in four working men, or 25 percent, dying from their first heart attack, as they did in 1949, now the death rate for such people is no more than three or four percent," said Dr. Ryan.
