Bel Marra Health, well known for offering high-quality, specially formulated vitamins and nutritional supplements, has commented on a recent study that says heart attacks without chest pain are becoming very common.
The Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has recently released a report that current studies now show that the most common signs and symptoms associated with heart attacks are changing. The CDC cited the latest article published in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) that there are gender-specific differences in the presentation of heart attacks.
The JAMA report states that women often do not experience any chest pain during heart attacks, unlike what is commonly observed among men.
John G. Canto, M.D., M.S.P.H., of the Watson Clinic and Lakeland Regional Medical Center, reported that the study consisted of an analysis of data from the National Registry of Myocardial Infarction, 1994-2006, of 1,143,513 registry patients. Of these, 42.1 percent were women. Women with MI were significantly older than men at hospital presentation, with an average age of 74 years, vs. 67 years for men.
In addition, any other signs of discomfort during
heart attacks, such as difficulty breathing and profuse sweating, also do not appear in female patients.
Jim Chiang, CEO of Bel Marra Health understands the importance of the research, saying the JAMA report will change our current understanding of heart attacks and will definitely require modifications in schemes on heart attack prevention.
