Heart attacks do not strike only men, nor do they wait until old age. This video demonstrates how women of all ages must be aware of their heart attack risk.
Many women dismiss heart attack symptoms. They might think that they are too young or too healthy to suffer such a major health problem. They may also push aside their health concerns if attending to other loved ones. However, women should not ignore the more common signs of a heart attack, which can include jaw pain, chest pressure, nausea, and excessive perspiration. Any or all of these signs warrant immediate emergency care.
