Real Women’s Heart Attack Stories
When women have heart attacks, their symptoms may be ignored even in the ER, because their symptoms might not fit the normal guidelines that most people recognize. Some women may only have pain in the upper body, nausea, or headaches. In some cases like those discussed in this video, women may even be turned away when they seek emergency care for these symptoms.
At Regional Medical Center, we work to make sure that all patients get the care they need for heart attacks, even if the symptoms or patients are outside of the normal guidelines for cardiac episodes. A heart attack may happen to anyone, and our ER and Accredited Chest Pain Center are prepared to treat the problem for any patient.
