Do You Treat Women Differently than You Treat Men in Cardiaology?

Read Transcript

Yes and no. I mean in a lot of things women are similar to men, there are certainly differences and not just the fact that we women tend to get heart disease 10 years later, but that does play into a little more aggressive I think in testing for diagnosis of symptoms for heart disease so chest pain in women is a lot harder to diagnose and figure out if it's really a heart disease or if it's something else.

And so we tend to do a little more testing perhaps with a lower thresholds in women than in men.
