A new study finds that hospitals in the U.S. with a high percentage of hospitalizations for heart attacks are also among the nation’s most heart-healthy, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
The new study from the American Heart Association says hospitals with high rates of hospitalization for heart attack are also the most heartily heart-friendly hospitals.
The CDC said it analyzed the hospital-based mortality data of more than 2,000 hospitals from the National Health and Medical Care Survey.
The study, which was published online today, looked at whether hospitalizations had an association with heart attack rates and whether there was a relationship between heart attacks and hospitalizations.
“Heart attack is the most common cause of death in the United States,” said Dr. Michael Osterholm, the study’s lead author.
“Our findings suggest that hospitalizations are not an independent risk factor for heart disease and mortality.”
The study found that hospitals with a higher percentage of heart attack patients had a greater number of hospital admissions and hospital admissions for hospitalizations, and had higher hospital admissions of heart disease, than hospitals with lower percentages of heart patients.
The researchers said that this is because patients with heart disease are more likely to be admitted to the hospital for cardiac arrest or heart failure, but less likely to have a heart attack.
Ostermo said that because of this, the higher rates of heart condition in hospitals with higher heart attack numbers could be attributed to these factors.
Osterholm said that while the higher hospitalization rates may not be a direct consequence of the higher heart rate rate in hospitals, it does have an effect.
Ostersholm said: “There is evidence that the risk of hospital admission for a heart condition increases with increasing heart rate, and higher heart rates are associated with higher hospitalizations.”
He said that there is also evidence that higher hospital admission rates increase the risk for a patient to die in the hospital, and the hospital’s failure to keep the patient alive for treatment.
The findings suggest the need for hospitals to have better patient care, including monitoring patients and monitoring their condition to reduce the risk.
Osteringham said that hospitals need to work more closely with the physician to better prepare for the most vulnerable patients, such as patients with diabetes, and those who have higher rates, such a women with a heart problem or those who are pregnant.
Ostsingham said hospitals need more funding to improve patient care.
He said the study showed that the average hospitalization rate was 1.1 per 100,000 residents in the 2010-11 season, which is about 2.5 percent of the nation.
