LI 0 Daily Record, Morris County, N.J. Sunday, October 16, 1994 Special advertising section Women In Business A woman's heart is different, needs special medical care Anne Smith was 50 years old when she experienced her heart attack only she didn't learn it was a heart attack right away. "I just hadn't been feeling well. Even with just a little effort, I'd suddenly be out of breath. Sometimes I felt so nauseous, I couldn't eat. I went to the emergency room and they thought it was my stomach. I insisted on a second opinion and that's when a cardiologist told me I was indeed having a heart attack." Anne may not have been diagnosed as having a heart attack right away because the signs of cardiovascular disease are often different in women than in men. While men usually experience sharp pains in the chest, women experience vague chest pressure, usually in the epigastric area (below the sternum). Their pain tends to come and go and is often accompanied by nausea. Women with heart disease also tend to experience severe shortness of breath when mildly exerted. According to medical experts, from the advisory board of "The Difference in a Woman's Heart" cam paign, which is a national effort sponsored by DuPont Radiopharmaceuticals to educate physicians and women about female heart disease, women may not recognize their risk factors age, hormone status, family history of heart disease, smoking, obesity, cholesterol levels and physical inactivity and need to take more active roles in discussing them with their doctors. Cardiovascular disease, well known as the leading killer of men, is actually the number one killer of women as well, claiming the lives of nearJy 500,000 every year, reports the American Heart Association (AHA). According to a recent Gallup poll, many women believe that breast cancer is their most serious health threat but in fact, about twice as many women die from heart disease than from breast, lung, ovarian and uterine cancers combined. Research has proven that women with coronary artery disease, which causes heart attacks, are less likely to be properly diagnosed than men and are also less likely to be treated aggressively. A study conducted by Dr. Douglas Miller and his col- leagues at St. Louis University Medical School shows that women with suspected coronary artery disease undergo fewer additional diagnostic 1 studies than men after an initial non-' invasive stress test that shows ! abnormalities. ? According to Miller, there are simple, painless, non-invasive tests available to detect heart disease that may be better suited to a woman's anatomy and physiology. One of these is cardiac imaging ' which allows three-dimensional , images of blood flow and the pump-. ing action of the heart. "By using a newer imaging agent such as Tech- netium-99m sestamibi," Miller said, "we are able to overcome the problem of shadows caused by breast tissue which can interfere with images of the heart. The clearer picture resulting from this method of , testing may give more accurate results than previously available , from routine treadmill and echocardiogram tests."
