It is increasingly recognized that symptoms of heart disease are different for men and women. But it appears we are often slower to recognize heart disease in women, resulting in important distinctions in early treatment and outcomes. What are these differences, and how can we, as providers, help narrow this gender gap? Host Dr. Janet Wright welcomes Dr. Rita Redberg, professor of clinical medicine at the University of California, San Francisco, School of Medicine (UCSF), and director of women's cardiovascular services at the UCSF National Center for Excellence in Women's Health, for an important conversation about where can we do a better job of encouraging women to be aware of cardiac concerns specific to women? Dr. Redberg also shares her approach to evaluating female patients with symptoms that are suggestive but not definitive.
