London: The symptoms of heart attack in women differ from that of men as fewer females experience chest pain, a new study has claimed.Overall men have significantly more heart attacks, but under the age of 55 women are more likely to die from one.According to a study of more than one million people in the US, without displaying the classic chest pain symptoms of a heart attack, some women may not be getting the right kind of treatment.The research found that among younger women, those aged under 55, the differences in symptoms with men of the same age were striking.Overall, 42 percent of women did not experience chest pain compared with 30 percent of men.Once admitted, the study found that women were more likely to die than men from the same age group.The study adds to evidence that women can experience quite different symptoms to men.“Optimal recognition and timely management of myocardial infarction (MI), especially for reducing patient delay in seeking acute medical care, is critical,” the BBC quoted the authors of the study as saying.“The presence of chest pain/discomfort is the hallmark symptom of MI.
