women are always less knowledgeable

Among people over 60 years of age, 64% of women have already completed one or more interviews about their cardiovascular health, compared with 82% of men; Among 18-25 year olds, 63% of women have never received counseling about their cardiovascular health. compared to 40% of men; of all ages combined, “nearly half (47%) of women, compared with one-third of men (34%), say they have never discussed their cardiovascular health.”

“Ultimately, 72% of men say they are well taken care of to prevent cardiovascular disease, compared to only 58% of women. »

Less cardiac massage for women

Collateral damage, a real lack of information. “Only 32% of women surveyed believe that taking oral contraceptives has a strong impact on their cardiovascular risk, and more than a quarter (26%) believe that pregnancy does not affect their cardiovascular health. “However, there is a cause-and-effect relationship between taking pills and the fragility of the cardiovascular system (high risk of arterial thrombosis, heart attack, stroke). The same applies to childbirth: cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of maternal mortality.

Lack of attention to cardiovascular vulnerability in women also results in significant loss of opportunity. The evidence comes from the numbers on myocardial infarction from a recent Canadian study recently presented at the European Congress of Emergency Medicine (September 16-20, 2023, Barcelona). The authors of this paper analyzed medical records documenting 40,000 cardiac arrests that occurred on public roads*.

Bottom line: Women are less likely to receive cardiac massage compared to men (61% vs. 68%), which partly explains why the risk of mortality in the female population is higher in the context of this accident. And, in general, heart attacks are more common in men. Symptoms of myocardial infarction in women will also differ from those in men. These two points may delay or even prevent third party intervention.

Note: In men, the main symptom of a myocardial infarction will be intense chest pain (in addition to pain radiating to the left arm, heavy sweating, unusual fatigue), while in women, intense and unusual shortness of breath associated with other lesser known symptoms such as sudden palpitations, feeling tired, severe back pain, digestive problems.
