  1. The Deadly Threat of Silent Heart Attacks By Judith Graham http://newoldage.blogs.nytimes.com/2012/10/02/the-deadly-threat-of-silent-heart-attacks/

  2. Compared with no treatment, the incremental cost per QALY gained with primary prevention ranged in the six regions from $746 to $890 for patients with a 10-year absolute risk of 25% or more; from $790 to $930 with a 10-year absolute risk of 15% or more; and from $1,039 to $1,221 with a 10-year absolute risk of 5% or more.

  3. CONCLUSION Early preventative care leads to an improved quality of life If you have a familial history with heart disease, it is better to practice preventative measures early Preventative measures less costly Older patients who have experienced a silent heart attack will still have improved quality of life if detected so future ones can be prevented Incremental quality of life improvement for those who have had a heart attack and have all underlying causes Improved quality of life can lead to less spent on health care expenditure
