Women's Heart Health

Heart disease is the No. 1 killer of women, yet many are not aware that women experience heart disease and its symptoms differently than men. Our Women's Heart Health program offers specialized care and education about women's cardiovascular risk factors and symptoms.

Women's Heart Attack Signs & Symptoms

While many heart attack symptoms are the same for both men and women, women may experience chest pain differently.

Heart attack symptoms include:

  • Pressure, burning, aching or tightness in the chest
  • Nausea
  • Pain that travels down one or both arms
  • Jaw pain
  • Fatigue, exhaustion
  • Anxiety
  • Chest pressure, squeezing or discomfort
  • Back pain
  • Shortness of breath
  • Feeling of fullness
  • Women sometimes experience indigestion, back pain and shortness of breath with or without chest pain

If you or someone you know is experiencing any of these symptoms, call 9-1-1 right away.
