In recent years, there has been a growing concern surrounding heart attacks. Despite the common belief that heart attacks primarily affect men, it’s crucial to recognize that women can also experience them, and the symptoms they encounter may differ. Studies have indicated that following a heart attack, the mortality rate tends to be higher in women, underscoring the importance of understanding and addressing these gender-specific differences in heart health.
Heart diseases, including heart attacks, have emerged as one of the primary causes of death worldwide, second only to cancer. The alarming surge in heart-related ailments is concerning as it impacts individuals across all age groups. Particularly distressing is the unfortunate outcome of many heart attack cases, leading to the abrupt and tragic loss of the patient’s life.
Although heart attack cases are frequently associated with men, it’s crucial to acknowledge that women are equally susceptible to this condition.

Women affected by heart diseases often tend to be older, with higher mortality rates observed among elderly women.
