Heart disease in women is problematic, because heart attack tends to cause different symptoms in women than in men. The misconceptions of heart attack symptoms in women has caused a higher number of misdiagnoses that can lead to serious complications—including fatalities.
In this video, you will hear physicians from the Tampa Bay Heart Institute discuss why women need unique cardiac care and how to spot a heart attack in female patients. Because women have different heart attack signs, they may need to be more proactive about seeking emergency care, since others may not immediately recognize that a heart attack is taking place.
