For their study, the researchers used data from 10 observational cohorts that included 28,140 participants who had a heart attack during the follow-up period. Physical activity levels were evaluated at baseline. Participants weekly physical activity levels were categorized as sedentary, low, moderate, or high.

The researchers found that 17.7% of participants died within 28 days after having a heart attack. Of those, 62.3% died immediately. Participants with a moderate or high level of physical activity had a 33% and 45% lower risk of dying immediately after a heart attack compared to participants who were sedentary. Similar results were seen for dying within 28 days after a heart attack.
