Women & Heart Disease

Heart disease is the main killer of women, causing 1 in 3 deaths each year which counts to approximately 1 woman every minute. There are several misconceptions about heart disease in women, and they could be putting you at risk. Other types of heart disease, such as coronary micro vascular disease (MVD) and broken heart syndrome, also pose a risk for women. These disorders, which mainly affect women, are not as well understood as CHD. Symptoms such as dizziness, palpitations, and syncope are frequent complaints encountered by family physicians, internists, and cardiologists. In contrast to these ubiquitous complaints, which are generally benign, sudden cardiac death remains an important public health concern. In general, the seriousness of cardiac arrhythmias depends on the presence or absence of structural heart disease. This Heart Congress scientific program has been CME and CPD certified.
