The More You Know, the Better Your Chances

The more a woman knows about heart disease, the better her chances of beating it. However, because of long-standing misconceptions about this condition, many continue to be at risk.

Know the Facts

  • Heart disease is the No. 1 killer of women and is more deadly than all forms of cancer combined.
  • Heart disease causes 1 in 3 women’s deaths each year, killing approximately one woman every minute.
  • An estimated 43 million women in the U.S. are affected by heart disease.
  • Ninety percent of women have one or more risk factors for developing heart disease.
  • Since 1984, more women than men have died each year from heart disease.
  • Eighty percent of cardiac and stroke events are preventable.

The symptoms of a heart attack can be different in women than they are in men. As a result, many women attribute these symptoms to other factors and lose precious time identifying a heart attack. The vision of the Prisma Health Women’s Heart Center is to correct gender inequalities as they relate to heart health and help women reduce their chances of heart disease.

Females, and sometimes the elderly, do not show the classic heart attack signs. Women often complain of vague pain in the lower back along with indigestion. Any pain or discomfort in the torso combine with nausea should be taken seriously.
