Heart disease kills more than two times as many Australian women than breast cancer

A little while ago, I read about a woman who had been told for 3 years that her chest tightness was anxiety only to be diagnosed with Three Vessel Disease (3VD: the left anterior descending, right coronary and circumflex arteries).

And the other day I heard of a woman diagnosed with asthma while she was actually having a heart attack.

  • Did you know that heart disease kills more than two times as many Australian women than breast cancer. ... and that about 40% of heart attacks in women are fatal?
  • Do you know that heart disease in woman is almost like a different disease in women compared to men?
  • Are you seeing a lot of women in your practice?
  • Do you know how to recognise symptoms of heart disease?


I feel it is a critical area to up-skill in.

I highly recommend the two-part presentations by Ruth Trickey starting next week.
