Heart Disease in Women
What is the incidence of cardiovascular disease in women? Is there a difference in the manifestation of cardiovascular disease in women compared with men? Should we treat both populations as the same?
Dr. Jane Lombard will present the historical perspective of heart disease in women and what we had learned over the last 40 years. Women have different symptoms then men, and have had different treatment and outcomes then men. We also learned that hypertension, and diabetes have different manifestations in men and women. Atrial fibrillation is also different in men compared with women. Finally, pregnancy confers separate risks on women, and now there is a sub specialty of Cardio Obstetrics.
Heart disease is still the number one killer of women, so the more specific we can tailor treatment, the more lives we can save with fewer side effects.
