Women treated less urgently for heart attacks Researchers find clear differences in way sexes are assisted By DANIEL Q. HANEY Tlie Associated Press ATLANTA — Women typically take an hour longer to get to the hospital when they have a heart attack and are treated less urgently once they arrive, explaining in part why they are more likely to die. Doctors have long noticed that heart attacks are more likely to be fatal in women than in men, but they have had trouble sorting out how much of this could be explained solely by the severity of their illnesses. Two large new studies suggest that women's worse medical conditions clearly do play a big part. However, the researchers also found small but clear differences between the sexes in the way both doctors and victims react to heart attacks, which are the No. 1 killer of men and women alike. One reason women take longer to get to the hospital is that they are less likely than men to suffer crushing chest pain, the hallmark sign of a heart attack. Instead, they may have more ambiguous symptoms, such as shortness of breath, an ache in the neck or jaw or something that feels like gas T CHILD FALLS pains. One of the researchers, Dr. Sandra Gan of Swedish Medical Center in Seattle, also speculated that doctors may treat women less aggressively simply because they tend to be older and sicker. And she said nonheart specialists, in particular, may be less likely to recognize and treat heart attacks in women. The findings, based on large national databases, were presented Wednesday at a meeting in Atlanta of the American College of Cardiology. Gan described an analysis of gender differences in the care of 180,083 elderly Medicare patients in 1994 and 1995, and Dr. John Canto of the University of Alabama in Birmingham outlined findings from 327,040 men and women of all ages treated at about 1,500 U.S. hospitals from 1994 to 1996. The data show that women are almost 50 percent more likely to die from their heart attacks than are men. Much of this can be explained by women's older age and worse health. They are typically about 10 years older than men when they have heart attacks. They are more likely to have other complicating diseases, such as diabetes and high blood pressure. And the small size of their coronary arteries makes them more difficult to treat with some procedures. Woman in wheelchair breaks 2-year-old's fall By The Associated Press NEW YORK — A woman who had moved her wheelchair into the shade of an apartment building wall became an unwitting hero when a 2-year-old boy fell from a third-floor window into her lap. Barbara Jones, 31, in a wheelchair because she has had three strokes, was visiting her mother in Harlem on Tuesday. She told the Daily News she usually sits in another spot a block away, but moved because of Tuesday's hot sun. "I don't go to that corner," she said. "I was talking to an old friend, and we got to the shade because of the heat." Above her, Adonis Gomez was playing with a cousin on a sofa inside his apartment when; he bounced out the only window in the room that lacked safety grates, his family said. 1 Adults cooking in the kitchen had opened the windows for fresh air. The falling boy glanced off-the left side of Jones' head, then rolled across her lap and fell to the pavement. ' ' "I thought somebody threw something out the window," she said. Adonis was in critical condition Tuesday at Columbia-Presbyterian Medical Center. Jones suffered a bruise near her left eye. . "Thank God she was there," said Maria Gomez, the boy's grandmother.
