How to Treat quiz: Women and heart disease

Relevance to General Practice

Heart disease is the leading killer of Australian women. Heart disease kills almost three times as many women as breast cancer. Although women are more likely to experience atypical symptoms (jaw, shoulder, neck and back pain) when having a heart attack, only one in five women is aware of at least one of the symptoms. 
There are a number of traditional and emerging non-traditional cardiovascular disease risk factors specific to women, of which doctors should be aware.
