Saturday, November 3rd, 2018 by | Posted In: Hospital Negligence, Medical Malpractice

A recent study in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences found that women are more likely to die from a heart attack than their male counterparts, except when they are treated by female physicians. In fact, any patient, regardless of gender, has a higher chance of survival from heart attack when treated by a female doctor.

According to the Mayo Clinic, heart attack symptoms include:

However, in women, heart attacks can present with all of the above symptoms without chest pain or pressure. It may just seem like the flu, heartburn, etc. The American Heart Association warns that heart attacks in women can have drastic outcomes, especially if the right help is not administered right away. The attorneys at McEnery Price Messey & Sullivan urge you to seek medical help at the emergency room if you have any of these symptoms immediately.
