Jill Tucker, RN says:

“Heart disease is an equal opportunity killer of both men and women. But women do not receive the same screening or preventative care for heart disease as men. This may be a reason for a higher death rate, compared to men, for women who suffer heart attacks. The health care community needs to educate women about heart disease, recognize the risk factors among women, and to provide the same treatment as that given to male patients.”
