Women less likely to get proper care for heart attacks
Women are less likely than men to receive appropriate and timely treatment after being hospitalized for a heart attack and more likely to die if it's severe, according to a study led by a Baylor College of Medicine cardiologist. The study found that women overall are nearly twice as likely to die of massive heart attacks as men. When researchers adjusted for the fact female patients tend to be older and sicker, they were 12% more likely to die.
